DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A neighborhood group in Dallas says it will have to sandblast a well-known memorial after someone vandalized it.

Someone painted “666” on the Legacy of Love Statue.

“To have someone tag it with the Christian symbol of the devil is upsetting to me.” said a woman at the memorial.

The memorial at the corner of Oak Lawn and Cedar Springs serves as a gathering spot for Dallas’ gay community. Residents nearby are furious.

The statue was built in 2006 as a memorial to those who have died from AIDS.

Dallas Police say they are investigating this incident, as well as several other acts of vandalism in the Oak Lawn area, as a hate crime.
