SHEEPSHEAD BAY - Residents are stunned and angry after anti-Semitic and anti-gay messages were found scrawled on the Holocaust memorial in Sheepshead Bay.

Police say they're investigating the vandalism as a possible hate crime. The vandalism took place amid controversy about plans to inscribe stones at the park for Holocaust victims who were gay.
