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.

    Hate seems to permeate this whole campaign between the conservative right where change is a no no and the progressive left where change is accepted as a fundamental fact of life to be embraced and enjoyed, not feared.

    It is sad that we have come to this level of ignorance and have to resort to racist and hateful acts to say what we have to say since we are not able to articulate. That is the level of education in this country. I find it strange that people will put up with being debased and used because they are the RIGHT colour. Our souls are white as is our Lord and if you can read PLEASE read your new testement and see what the man that you profess to follow says about forgiveness and treating others as we would like to be treated. HE says that we are to love one another as HE floves us. And as for forgiveness, He says that we should forgive one another 7 times 77 times. Food for thought.

    With fever pitch of the GOP hatred they are selling in the Denver area this was just a matter of time. They shot Allen Berg in Denver and the rednecks in the northeast probably gave Tim McVeigh all his support too. The FBI should be looking at the hate groups in this area with a black president this areas clan background is getting heated up. Yes it is about race.

    Sometimes people are afarid of the possibilities. They are inadequate in areas of success, therefore, they try to scare and or eliminate anything that is for growth. The fact is a bullet came through a window where people were inside. America s so caught up into political parties that we forget we are people with families,uggles, love , patience and most of all life..
