State Police are investigating a recent incident in which anti-LGBTQ rhetoric was spray-painted onto the wall of a Gettysburg health center as a hate crime, a spokesperson said Wednesday.

The incident occurred sometime between June 18-21 at the Gettysburg Holistic Health Center on the 2300 block of Fairfield Road, according to State Police. 

The anti-LGBTQ rhetoric was spray painted on the wall of the center's counselling suite, which has been known to offer services to LBGTQ clients, police said.

The building also has Pride flags displayed at its doorways and is an active participant in Gettysburg Pride events, according to police.

"This is considered a hate crime," said Trooper Megan Ammerman, a State Police spokesperson. "The Pennsylvania State Police Heritage Affairs Office has been contacted regarding this incident as well."

The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact State Police at (717) 334-8111.
