WOODSTOCK, Ga. (AP) — 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.
Someone also left two large chunks of deer meat near their front door, members of the Louis family told WSB Radio.
Kenny Louis said he and his brothers are ready to move. They've been sleeping in shifts to be on guard in case of a similar incident.
"We don't know why, we don't know what's the next step or how far they're willing to go," Louis told WSB-TV.
His brother, Kerry Louis, has a warning for whoever left the cross the deer meat: "Don't come back again," he said. "Don't come back again, we've got guns and stuff."
Residents of the home are black, but the motives behind the crime are not clear.
