CINCINNATI (AP) _ A black Cincinnati police officer is under investigation over a Facebook post that mentioned that white officers “are looking for a reason to kill a black man.”

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Officer Freddie Vincent posted the comments earlier this month after the fatal shootings of black men by police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota.

Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac says the department is aware of the post and is reviewing it in relation to its social media policies.

Vincent alleged harassment and discrimination at the hands of white supervisors in a lawsuit filed against the city last year. The case was settled in April.

No one answered a phone number listed for Vincent. An attorney for the officer hasn’t returned a request for comment.
