A local news crew captured a disturbing image scrawled in black spray paint outside a Ferguson, Missouri, business after protests turned into violence and looting over the shooting death of an unarmed teen in the city.

“The only good cop is a dead cop,” the message read, according to KTVI-TV. The anchor called it “very disturbing.”

KTVI says nearly 20 stores have been vandalized in the looting spree.

Early Monday afternoon KTVI removed a video it had previously posted about the vandalism.

Facebook user Jeanne Marie Hawkins posted video of what appears to be looting at a Shoe Carnival store in the area:

Police say 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot numerous times Saturday after an incident involving a police officer.
