OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Chickasaw Nation says its Oklahoma City office has been vandalized with graffiti similar to that found on the building that houses the Oklahoma Democratic Party.

Tribal spokesman Tony Choate says the graffiti was discovered Thursday morning as tribal employees reported for work. Choate says vandals spray-painted derogatory remarks about various groups outside the building.

Racist and anti-Semitic graffiti as well as anti-LGBTQ epithets were found early Thursday outside the Democratic Party headquarters building in Oklahoma City. Choate says the tribe's offices, located less than one mile north of the Oklahoma State Capitol, were defaced in the same way.

Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby says the vandalism is out of place for Oklahoma and that it's important to move past the isolated incident.

The Oklahoma City Police Department is investigating the vandalism.
