No injuries after shot fired at Obama campaign office in Denver

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.

    The shooter must be apprehended. They are using guns now to intimidate President Obama because they cannot bet him on substance. I blame the NRA.

    Democrats support racial affirmative action programs in employment and college programs. Think before you cast your vote.

    This, done by a person who supports an ideology for a party system that wants to run our country. Great.

    I think this incident, which I strongly condemn, was caused by Obama's ad videos on Youtube. I intend to write Youtube a strongly worded letter asking them to remove his advertisements to avoid further violence.

    OK, it's official.... It is very obvious that low oxygen levels and guns don't go together.
    What is it goes with these folks in Denver shooting up everything and everyone...?

    Here comes the intimidation. Shots fired at Obama Campaign Office, we'll see Police & Sheriff Deputies at polling stations checking blacks for warrants and detaining people for 24 hrs. These are all tactics that the repub will be using to stop blacks from voting for Obama and since the Police are the perps who will enforce the law to ensure all citizens will have the right to vote

    Is there an audio recording of what happened around the time the shot was fired? Also I have said this regarding Okeret´s death too, is the cause known? A tabloid had an article on Oswald beening under mind control of the cubans.Getting a clean audio sample is easy, see my posts.
