Amtrak has launched an investigation after a noose was found hanging at a Chicago mechanical facility.

An employee there snapped a picture and sent it to ABC7.

An Amtrak spokesperson says the noose was removed immediately.

He said Amtrak has a zero tolerance policy and the person responsible will be terminated.

This noose was found in a part of the mechanic garage that is for employees only.

It's located in the 1400-block of South Lumber.
