It was not immediately clear how many vehicles were tagged with the graffiti. Police said the vandalism, which occurred on Locust Avenue, was reported in a 911 call at 3:08 a.m.

Police said the graffiti included a series of initials and gang tags.

It was unclear if police believe vehicles were targeted.
