SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - As the investigation moves forward, officials in Bullitt County release upsetting pictures of graffiti at two high schools. The graffiti was painted using stencils in several places at Bullitt Central and North Bullitt High Schools.

The graffiti was found by students. One scene shows an anti Ku Klux Klan image. The same one was found in Alabama last fall. Other images show a girl looking at a tombstone.

School officials say parents and students shouldn't be concerned; there is no danger at school.

"It became apparent quite quickly it was a series of acts that the school personnel and police determined were an art in poor taste rather than any evil intent," school district attorney Eric Farris said.

Officials say the stencils are by the European street artist Banksy. They're seen in Europe as political statements.

All the graffiti in Bullitt County has been painted over. Law enforcement in Bullitt County is investigating. They do have a surveillance picture.
