LIMA, Ohio — Police are investigating several shots that broke windows at a synagogue in Ohio.

Officers in Lima say they believe it’s a case of vandalism and not a hate crime.

They say it appears that several windows at the Temple Beth Israel-Shaare Zedek synagogue were broken Friday night by either a BB gun or pellet gun.

Police say they are adding extra patrols and will look into whether it’s more than vandalism.

Lima Police Sgt. Jason Warren says there are no signs indicating that and he says it’s common to find that type of vandalism in the city.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said Monday that police should investigate it as a hate crime.

Lima is roughly 80 miles southwest of Toledo.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
