PARK CITY, Utah — Park City Police are looking to identify two people spotted on surveillance camera footage around the time a "Black Lives Matter" mural was defaced.

In the early morning of July 8, the word "Black" on the city-sanctioned mural on Main Street was painted over so the message read "Lives Matter" instead.

The mural was one of four painted on the street over the Fourth of July weekend "to celebrate and showcase social equity."

On Friday, Park City Police released images from surveillance cameras in the area, showing two people walking past part of the mural around the time the vandalism occurred. Police say the two are wanted for questioning.
