SNOHOMISH, Wash. (AP) — A multi-racial Washington state family has raised concerns after Ku Klux Klan symbols were spray painted on multiple trees near their home.

KOMO-TV reports that the Anderson family has had tough conversations about race with their four adopted children, but the racially offensive graffiti crossed a line.

The Snohomish family says the teenage son discovered the KKK symbols on six to eight trees as he walked through the woods right next to their house heading to the lake.

Snohomish County deputies say an investigation is underway.

Authorities say they have not received any other reports and they do not have any leads.

The family says the community is usually friendly and welcoming, but a conversation clearly needs to happen.
