The latest on the investigation into Confederate flags found at the Ebenezer Baptist Church near the Martin Luther King Jr. Center in Atlanta:

Atlanta’s police chief says officials have seen on surveillance video the images of two white males who placed Confederate battle flags on the grounds of the Ebenezer Baptist Church near the Martin Luther King Jr. Center in Atlanta.

Chief George Turner said Thursday at a news conference: “We do have images of two white males placing those flags on the campus.” He said he doesn’t know their ages, and he didn’t give other details.

Turner says the video will be released soon.

Turner called the placing of the flags disgusting but not surprising. He said: “We’ve seen this kind of ugliness before.” Officials say Confederate flags have been placed on the center’s campus before, including at King’s tomb.

Turner says Atlanta police are working with federal officials to find the men. He says authorities have “good, strong physical evidence.”

A local pastor said the Confederate flags was an act of terrorism.
