Police in Orlando, Florida, will increase their presence at tonight's Jackson Browne concert at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts after receiving a possible threat.

Police have confirmed that Browne is performing in Orlando on Tuesday at the Walt Disney Theater, raising concerns over an attack modeled on the Las Vegas strip attack on October f1 that left 58 people dead and 851 injured.

The FBI has been contacted after profane signs were found hung outside a West Lafayette church, West Lafayette Police Chief Jason Dombkowski said.

The threatening banners have raised concerns of mass shooting attacks modeled on the Las Vegas massacre, which took place previous year in October and left 58 people dead and 851 injured. Tuesday's date "Jan. 23" is written in red.

The other banner targeted singer Jackson Browne for his opposition to Trump and dedication to progressive causes. Another banner left at the church names Browne.


Police are investigating after banners with racist and anti-gay messages were erected outside an IN church known for its progressive stands on racial and social justice issues.

"I'm so f-ing mad", he said.

"We are aware that there is a planned Jackson Browne concert January 23 at the Dr. Phillips Center and there will be an increased security presence at the event", Orlando police said in a statement.

Orlando police released a statement, saying, "OPD is aware of this incident and has been in communication with police in West Lafayette, Indiana".

However, Rev. Charlie Davis says the church does plan to hold a Wednesday evening service full of songs and talk of social justice, in hopes of using the vandalism to bring the community together.
