Investigators said the walls were vandalized with profanity and the windows looked to be smashed.

The church has been the focus of recent protests in the community and has been labeled as anti-LGBTQ.

“It appeared that the walls to the church had been vandalized as well as all the windows at first appeared to be smashed,” El Monte Police Department Lt. Christopher Cano said. “Then, we realized that the windows were not smashed and that they had actually blown out from some type of explosion.”

No injuries were reported in the incident and authorities said a joint investigation is underway to apprehend the person, or group, responsible.
