A Cincinnati firefighter is under investigation for a social media comment made in response to an officer's controversial Facebook post last week. 

CFD's Catherine Ritter confirmed the comment is linked to Cincinnati Police Officer Freddie Vincent's post about cops "looking for a reason to kill a black man." Vincent's comments prompted an internal review by police administrators. 

Ritter could not provide details about the firefighter's post, but said investigators are looking into whether it violated their code of conduct. 

Vincent's social media post made national headlines and came amid high-profile issues surrounding police-community relations. 

Police have not released the findings of Vincent's review.
