The truck belonging to the bishop of a predominantly black church in Florida was submerged, wrecked and the words “SS Charleston 2″ were scrawled on it before it was left outside the New Shiloh Christian Center over the weekend.

Police have determined the attack, which included trashing the church’s foyer, ransacking the bistro, shattering glass and spraying fire extinguishers all over the floor, is a hate crime and are offering a reward for information leading to arrest of the perpetrators.

“They actually drove the vehicle into the pond, and the truck was submerged underwater,” Lashaunda Edwards, bishop Jacquelyn Gordon’s daughter, told local MyNews13. “The doors were wide open, and glass was just everywhere.”

It’s not the first time the church in the coastal town of Melbourne has been hit.
