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.

    Did Denver police blame a movie for this?

    Probably a democrat like multiple instances I'm '08. And since.

    Who trashed the Colorado office? Who did the hate mails? Democrats.

    Still waiting in the "racists" comments on audio from the health care debate.

    The repubs know they can't win, so they have resorted to violence and intimidation (in ADDITION to laws that discriminate against the poor) in order to try to rig the election.

    This has been my biggest fear, that the right wing fringe is so desperate, and hate the idea of a black man in the White House so much, that they would resort to this.

    it duznt sound good. America better be sure that Our President is well-protected, esp. after he wins the election. If anything happens to him America will burn, burn, burn 1000 times more than MLK's time.

    Voter suppression is becoming more violent and if the opposition can't win the election then they will steal it, by hook or by crook. Joe must have won last night after all...

    Not surprising to me. The hatred for Obama has been verging on scary lately...and the fury is greatest among the already unstable right wingnuts.

    Chair lynchings, death threats, now shots fired. The Republicants think murdering the president will get them what they want. Isn't ignorance and hatred sad? It's 2012!

    7 abortion doctors murdered, one right in his own church. Hundreds of clinics bombed, many more trashed and graffitied. One Democratic politician shot in the head, many Democratic politicians spit on. Our president has had more threats than any president in history. When is the extremist right wing going to stop? When do the regressive's realize they have gone too far? When do the right wing crazies get out of the way, stop helping our enemies see us as weak, so we can get on with making America respected and strong again? When do they stop before it is too late?

    Surely the shooter is some Talibangelical who will claim that "god" told him to do it.
    We need to vote this GOP completely out of government, let them regroup with new moderate conservatives, and get the woman abusing religious fanatics OUT of the House.

    Merely more dirty right wing and Tea Party extremists who will go to no end to disrupt and cheat in order to win the upcoming election.

    GOP surrogates, especially on talk radio, have been spewing hate against Obama for 4 years on a 24/7 daily basis. This is a predictable result and it shows the mentality of a vast number of those who love tuning in to the garbage on those shows. It can't be for news or information because it's so one sided that it's obviously propaganda. Thanks to such hosts, the modern KKK is alive and well and doing the same kinds of things they were doing 50 years ago.
