At least two people were killed and eight others were wounded in overnight shootings across Chicago Saturday, including two men shot in a Wicker Park, authorities said.

Police on Long Island are investigating graffiti vandalism discovered at an elementary school over the weekend as a possible bias incident. 

The graffiti on the outside walls of the Martin Avenue Elementary School in Bellmore included two swastikas in pink paint marker and slur words and letters in black marker.

The graffiti was apparently made over the weekend.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS.
