ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – The naked statue at Compton Hill Reservoir Park was vandalized Sunday night or Monday morning. Someone spray painted FTP, an anti police message across the front of it. A few blocks away, the entrance to Flora Place was also marred with a message that also included the letters FTP. Both locations are near Shaw Avenue where an off duty St. Louis police officer shot and killed a teenager last month. Investigators say the teen fired first. Several protesters have taken to the streets in the neighborhood chanting "All lives matter" and "No justice. No peace." At this point, police don't know who is responsible for the graffiti.
