(CBS Seattle) — Graffiti referencing the Trayvon Martin case was found at a Seattle restaurant that was set on fire by an arsonist.

According to KIRO TV, the fire was started  at the Med Mix restaurant in Seattle’s Central District about 2:15 a.m. Monday. Surveillance video obtained by KIRO shows a masked, hooded figure spray painting on the building next to the restaurant, then setting fire to the Med Mix using gasoline and a match. The red letters read “4 Pratt and Trayv.”  Detectives told KIRO Pratt probably refers to civil rights leader Edwin Pratt, who was killed in the Seattle area in 1969. “Trayv” seems to refer to Trayvon Martin, the teen killed by George Zimmerman.

Restaurant owner Ottmane Bezzaz told KIRO he doesn’t know why his business was targeted or who might be responsible.

The fire did $90,000 in damage to the restaurant and Bezzaz says he plans to rebuild.

The Seattle Police Arson Bomb Squad is investigating. No one was hurt in the fire.
