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.

    I almost want Romney to win, to nip this violence at the bud, otherwise the crazies will emerge out of the bushes.

    another liberal trying to frame the tea party? Didn't the libtards do the same thing when the tea party descended upon DC? I may be wrong but this is well within established operating aprameters of the liberal brain dead mind.

    Obama is an idiot. His supporters are idiots. His friends are idiots. The guy who did this took a stand against idiots. They are lucky he only wanted to break glass. They should thank God for protecting them and thay should ask him for some brains. Thanks and brains.

    It's stupid stuff like this that makes people want tighter "gun controls." Do the rest of us gunowners a favor, think before you act. If you are going to drink, don't carry! Most likely the fool who did this got drunk and thought this would be a great idea. Thankfully nobody was hurt.

    Firing a weapon into an occupied building, particularly when that building is leased by the president of the United States will get you locked up for a very, very long time.

    I'm relieved to know that no one was injured as a result of this reckless, desperate act. I imagine the crime was carried out by someone that either was lashing out against the campaign, or strategically attempting to taint the other – but either way, he or she is an extremist and a lonely, unstable voice. Americans across party lines long for a rational, civil and substantive campaign. We are unified in denouncing such violent behavior. Again, how thankful I am to hear no one was hurt. May authorities be able to quickly determine what happened.

    This just proved how desperate Romney and his camp are. They are truly a bunch of desperate sore losers.
