A billboard in Los Angeles for the Chris Kyle autobiography film “American Sniper” was defaced with the word “Murder!” in red paint on Sunday.

Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. A. Bone said no official crime report has yet been filed and it will likely be impossible to determine who is responsible.

“Taggers like to throw up their own stuff,” he told People magazine. “If it’s just the word ‘murder’ there’s practically no way to track it down.”

The defaced billboard stands at Wilshire Boulevard and Bundy Drive in Brentwood, a local Fox affiliate reported.

Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” which tells the story of the deadliest sniper in U.S. history, grossed more than $105 million in its opening weekend, shattering the record previously held by James Cameron’s “Avatar.”
