ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Police are investigating after a metro Atlanta family found a large cross, which had been set on fire in their front yard.

The flaming cross was found Sunday night, a few steps from the front door of their Woodstock home about 30 miles north of Atlanta.

Members of the Louis family say someone also left two large chunks of deer meat near their front door.

The family members say they’ve been sleeping in shifts to be on guard in case of a similar incident.

Residents of the home are black, but the motives behind the crime are not clear.
