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.

    It seems that people are getting nervous or something with incidents like this one starting to happen. They must know that President Obama is going to win this election, even though Mr. Romney has gained a few points during the first Presidential Debate. That really doesn't mean anything, because don't forget there are two more Presidential Debates and believe me President Obama is going to show up and show out.

    Why don't you refer to our President as "President Obama" or "The President" rather than "Obama?"

    It wouldn't surprise me one bit if they did this themselves.

    This polarization extremism has got to stop.
    We're becoming what so repulsive in mid east extremists.
    Obama, the great unifier, has failed miserably to unite the country.

    The only intelligent choice remaining is "None Of The Above"

    this is out of hand. Didn't the violence against gabby Gifford teach us anything? There is no excuse, this is simply unacceptable.

    These racist neo-fascist conservatives will do anything to keep democracy and freedom from prevailing. But we will keep fighting and Obama will be elected again! You hear that! We are not afraid of you!
