Spencer said the department is “still investigating to determine the origin of the flyers and criminal activity.”
In a statement posted on Twitter late Sunday evening, Tucker Mayor Frank Auman called the flyers “repugnant” and “small-minded” and said the city has been working with DeKalb police to find the people responsible for them.
“The type of message included in these flyers is in direct contrast to the values we hold at the core of our Tucker community, Auman said. “Ours is a city full of loving and kind-hearted people from all different backgrounds.”
Auman urged anyone with information to call DeKalb police at 678-406-7929.
News of the flyers comes after a shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood that left 11 dead. Authorities arrested Robert Bowers, who faces 29 federal charges.
“In regards to the synagogue shooting in Pennsylvania, DeKalb officers are patrolling our synagogues as often as possible and also going inside to greet the members as a show of support and increased security,” Spencer said. “We do not have any specific threats.”
