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.

    This is the tone of this election. Lies, cheating, misleading ads. Never have I seen our country so divided. America is heading for a full economic collapse, don't fool yourself about that. Our nation has already forever changed.

    I see. The republican strategy has shifted from outright lying to attempted murder. There used to be a day when you could be elected just by doing what is best for the American people. The GOP has lost sight of this with their hate-based agenda.

    More hee-haw Teaaaaabagggers. Go back to Colorado Springs – Denver doesn't want you. And should you still feel the need to shoot something, shoot yourselves.

    And the shot was fired by a right winger wacko that watches Fox News. Typical of your conservative types who believe everything they see tv. They should feel right at home watching honey boo boo.

    I'm moderate, politically independent, and I go to the range regularly. This is just asinine. Conservatives really need to distance themselves from ignorance and vitriolic rhetoric that results in violence like this. It's exactly why Giffords was shot. This is also why moderates like me are driven away by the hate mongering being cultivated within the conservative base.

    What is this 1960? The GOP keeps firing up their crazies and when something happens to someone they will try and distance themselves from the whole thing. First Gabby Gifford and their story that it had nothing to do with the crosshairs Sarah Palin put on her district. Or her orders to lock and load em! When someone kills somone over this election I want Issa to do a REAL investigation on neglegent homicide by politician who know some of their folloers are dangerous and deranged!

    Shame on you for not accepting the Democracy we live in and those that the system has elected. Perpetual hate leads to violence.
