Police investigating graffiti at Chute Middle School

Police are investigating graffiti that an employee found Wednesday morning on Chute Middle School property.

A 42-year-old Chicago man who works at the school reported the graffiti to the school’s principal, who called police at 6:45 a.m., Glew said. The suspect used black and white paint to create a tag with the words “4 kids” on a wall outside the school in the 1400 block of Oakton Street.

Glew said the act was random and no suspects have been identified.
