Possible threat prompts increased security at Jackson Browne Orlando concert

The case started miles away in another state.

“We are aware that there is a planned Jackson Browne concert Jan. 23 at the Dr. Phillips Center and there will be an increased security presence at the event,” Orlando police said in a statement.

Members arrived Sunday to discover that vandals had targeted the church, hanging two banners outside containing racial epithets and a number of slurs, authorities said.

One of the banners referenced Jackson Browne and the date of his Orlando concert. The other banner mentioned recent mass shootings in Orlando and Las Vegas.

Orlando police said they are “in communication with police in West Lafayette.”

West Lafayette city officials will hold a “Unite against Hate” rally Wednesday night to show solidarity with the church.

Authorities in West Lafayette and Orlando have yet to make an arrest in the case.
