EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The FBI is investigating after a shot was fired through a synagogue in Evansville.

It happened at Adath B'Nai Israel Temple on Newburgh Road.

Rabbi Gary Mazo says he discovered it in the window of a Sunday school classroom Tuesday morning. He believes it happened sometime Sunday night.

Rabbi Mazo says the shooter would have had to walk to the back of the building by the playground.

Investigators are going through surveillance and increasing security. FBI officials say this will most likely be ruled a hate crime.
