At a time when local businesses need our support more than ever, someone decided to be a massive jerk instead.

Brandon Hamilton with our partners at News 10 reports that vandals broke windows at Black Meg 43 on East Rancier overnight.

The owner, a veteran, shared more information on Facebook. The vandal struck at 1:10 AM, breaking every window in the place. In response to a comment, management said the damage was carried out with a hammer. They estimate the windows will cost over $15,000 to repair.

With local business owners already stressed due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, it makes me cringe to see the images they shared.

Black Meg remains open despite the damage (which is already being repaired), so if you'd like to help them with the repair bill while enjoying some great food, give them a call at (254) 200-9634 or pick up a meal at 1406 E Rancier Ave.

If you have any information that could be helpful to Killeen police, give them a call at (254) 501-8830.
