TICKER: Report: Shots fired at Obama campaign office in Denver


Police confirm that shots were fired into President Obama’s Denver campaign office.

The Denver Post reports: No one was injured, though people were inside the offices when the incident occurred, said Denver police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez.

“It looks like it was one shot that was fired into the structure,” she said.

The incident happened at about 3 p.m. at the campaign’s offices on West Ninth Avenue near Acoma Street, Lopez said.

A reporter for the Denver Westword tweeted a photo showing the shot out front window of the Obama campaign field office. The glass company has now begun the task of putting up plywood in the window and cleaning away the broken glass.

Police are reportedly in search of a “vehicle of interest” seen in the area around the time of the shooting.

Colorado is a swing state and Romney took the lead over Obama after the first presidential debate. The latest Denver Post poll  shows Romney up by one point in the state.

Nineteen percent of voters in Colorado say they are less likely to vote for the President because of the debate, and a whopping twenty-six percent say they are more likely to vote for Mitt Romney.

The Obama campaign has not commented on the shooting.
