SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Police in Salem, Oregon, say someone painted graffiti referencing the Islamic State under a play structure at an elementary school.

KPTV reports (https://is.gd/zedUti ) that police say the graffiti that read “ISIL we R here” was painted sometime last weekend. ISIL is one of the acronyms for the Islamic State. The message was quickly cleaned up Monday.

Police say they know of no activity by the group in the area and haven’t previously seen such graffiti.

Miller Elementary School Principal Jessica Brenden says, “Of course it’s alarming.”

Police say they don’t have much to go on.
