MEMPHIS — The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis has increased security after finding a broken window and a man sleeping inside.

WMC-TV reported police responded to a call at the museum early Wednesday after security officers noticed a smashed window on the second floor.

The main section of the newly renovated museum reopened April 5, the day after the 46th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination in Memphis. King was killed on April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of the old Lorraine Motel, which was later converted into the museum in downtown Memphis.

Police say they found a man asleep in a bed of the motel, just a few doors down from where King was staying on the day he died. The man wasn't immediately identified.
