LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities are searching for a suspect who vandalized a Las Vegas community center serving gay, lesbian and transgender people.

Las Vegas police say a man spray-painted a homophobic slur in black letters on the glass doors of the LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada on Thursday morning.

Investigators say two surveillance videos show the suspect using a spray can and also interacting with another man.
