Denver Police Detective Raquel Lopez stated that campaign workers were inside the Obama reelection campaign field office when the shooting occurred but that no injuries were reported, according to Reuters.
Detective Lopez added that police were notified by one of the workers inside the office on Friday afternoon reporting that a bullet had shattered one of the windows at around 3 pm.
There are currently no suspects in the shooting at President Obama’s campaign office, though the incident is being investigated as the detective further explained:
“Right now, no one is in custody and investigators are looking at surveillance video to see if a vehicle can be identified.”
Investigators are currently looking at surveillance video but have yet to confirm a description of the vehicle that may have been involved in the shooting.
A large panel of glass was left shattered on the street outside the downtown Denver campaign office located at West Ninth Avenue near Acoma Street on Friday, notes The Washington Post.
Authorities are not releasing any other information about the incident at this time as it is still an ongoing investigation, though Detective Lopez stated she was not aware of any previous threats against Obama’s campaign office.
The Secret Service has also referred any and all questions about the shooting to Denver police. A spokesperson for President Obama’s campaign declined to comment any further on the incident.
