JEFFERSON CITY – Orange stickers with an image of rifle crosshairs were found Tuesday on the office doors of several Democratic state senators, prompting an investigation by Missouri Capitol Police, Senate Administrator Jim Howerton said.

“We are taking all the precautions we can,” Howerton said….

….Two sizes of stickers were found, Justus said. There were smaller ones, about the size of a half-dollar. Two lawmakers removed them only to find larger stickers, about 4 or 5 inches in diameter, in their place, Justus said….

They came back.
