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'm surprised it didn't happen before. Some people are pretty mad about Obamacare. They just can't stand the idea that if he get re elected we all won't have to grovel to the corporations for healthcare. Those people are idiots.

    I mean, it's not that serious, people. I don't like Obama either, but this is a little too much now.

    Congratulations Rush, Sean, Neal Boortz, and all the rest of you foaming-at-the-mouth Republican and Tea Party crazzies – this is what all your inflamatory rhetoric, misrepresentations, and outright lies, leads to.

    I wondered how long it would take for all the rabid right wing hate mongering to lead to gunfire. This is the group we need leading the country. What a fine group of 'Mericans !!!

    So, now Mittens has a new friend, his name is Putin. If this doesnt scare anyone from running from Mittens as fast as they can, he wil have us in WW3 in less than 4 years if elected. We don't need thius guy that has no clue what is happening around the world. And to make stupid statements about other countries. Treasonous. Mitt report directly to Gitmo, do not pass go.

    It is regrettable that someone would go this far to make their point. Racism comes to mind easily. The way people treat Obama is different from how they did other presidents in the past – take that pizza guy who lifted him off, for example. It's time to end racism once and for all, and it should not be part of American politics.

    Sore losers... C'mon guys, Ryan was not that much crunched yesterday. He may recover, ok? Back to a civilized discourse now?

    I've never seen a Presidential season this mired in hate on both sides. Even as someone who considers myself an Obama supporter, both sides have been nasty to each other, and that spills over into the American people. Until both candidates come out and declare an end to the vitriol and crap and get the public fervor under control, I suspect we'll see more of this sort of thing unfortunately.
