Another noose found near museum in nation's capital

People sit around the fountains at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden.

A noose was found hanging from a tree outside of the National Gallery of Art Saturday afternoon, the third of this type of incident in the last few weeks. It was found on a lamppost in the area of 3rd Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

Last month, a noose was discovered inside the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, prompting a portion of the museum to be closed for almost three hours while police investigated.

This noose sighting is the third one on the National Mall.

Police told BuzzFeed News Saturday that all three incidents remain under investigation. It is not and the story has been changed to reflect that correction.
