St. Louis (KSDK) - A concerned viewer tipped us off about a somewhat disturbing crosswalk sign a few blocks from a school.

The sign is near the Washington University campus, at the intersection of Waterman and Skinker.

Someone used electrical tape to make it look like the woman on the sign is carrying a gun.

A few residents we spoke to said it's a representation of some of the neighborhood's issues.

"I think it's kind of disturbing. I live in the area and with all the shootings and stuff in the area, it's kind of scary just to think about it," said Kim Jones, a Washington University student.

We called the St. Louis Streets Department, and the sign was cleaned up Wednesday afternoon.
