No injuries after shot fired at Obama campaign office in Denver

(CNN) - A single shot was fired Friday at an Obama campaign office in Denver, Colorado, a police spokeswoman said.

The shot resulted in no injuries, although people were in the building at the time, Denver police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez told CNN.

Police did not have a description of a suspect but did have a possible vehicle of interest, Lopez said.

A glass window was shattered, images of the scene showed.

Lopez said the Secret Service, which protects President Obama, was not involved in the investigation Friday, although the agency’s involvement would depend on what Denver police find.

Obama's re-election campaign had no comment and referred questions to Denver police.

Obama was in Washington on Friday.

    Quite frankly, given the hatred that's been spewed over the past 3 1/2 years, I'm amazed that Obama is still alive.

    Apparently Obama was correct in that hate filled speech in 2007...."the bullet is still in the gun!" Get used to this sort of thing as we get closer to the election...Obama will send his surrogates out to do things like this to stoke racial tensions and fears. All part of a grander plan in undermining America....

    Anyone surprised tat right wingers are shooting at the offfices of the President? The gun crowd are al ina tizzy because the NRA has lied to them repeatedly about President Obama coming to "take away ther guns." Of course President Obama has not said a single word about gun conrol and the only legislation he signed with gun measures in it was the insane bill with the rider in it pushed by the NRA that allows kooks to carry loaded concealed weapons in national parks.

    Another right-wing throwback exercising his second-amendment responsibility. What will they do when they wake up to find they've lost it all? WMD's?

    A typical low-life who is filled with so much hatred and resentment to the point of engaging in violence and intimidation. Some things never change.

    Forward Obama/Biden 2012!

    Was this attack the result of a recently released YouTube video?

    Vote Gary Johnson...He brings a sharp tongue to any debate and doesn't need to shoot a gun to get a point across or make threats against someone for expressing their political opinion. Thank you Obama and Romney for dividing our country.

    Hey, we're not racist. We just use their tactics.

    Most likely a liberal Democrat expressing their angst at Obama's and Biden's debate debacles.

    Colorado is turning out to be a dangerous state. I think a mixture of thin air and no gun control is chemistry we will seeing reporting on some time to come.

    I guess the republicans think if they cannot beat him they will get rid of him some other way or try to scare him into withdrawing!!!
