Another noose was found outside a museum in the District, according to authorities. It’s the third such incident in recent weeks.
The noose was found hanging from a lamp post outside National Gallery of Art on Saturday, U.S. Park Police say.
Authorities are investigating how the noose got there.
This incident comes shortly after a noose was found near an elementary school in Southeast, D.C.
Another noose was found outside the National Museum of African American History and Culture, just days after a noose had been found on the grounds of the Hirshhorn Museum.
All three of the museums are located on the National Mall.
