Shot Fired Into Obama’s Denver Campaign Office

Denver police say that a shot was fired into a busy Barack Obama field office earlier this afternoon, according to an account in the Denver Post.

People were inside the office at the time of the incident, but no one was hurt, per a police statement issued to the Post. The shot was fired around 3 p.m. local time, and police have a “possible vehicle of interest” but are not releasing further details pending an ongoing investigation.

The Post has a photo of the boarded-up, large storefront window here, and Sam Levin, a reporter for the Denver Westword, posted a picture of the window to his Twitter account here.

The Obama campaign declined to comment when contacted by Roll Call and referred inquiries to the Denver Police Department.
