Someone fired a shot through one of the Obama campaign offices in Denver this afternoon, shattering the glass in one of the windows. No one was injured, according to a Denver Police Department spokeswoman.

There are also no suspects as of this writing, and the crime at the 9th Avenue and Acoma field office remains under investigation.

Here's the damage as of late this afternoon.

DPD spokeswoman Raquel Lopez says that police received a call at 3 p.m. regarding "criminal mischief" at the office, which is on 9th, between Acoma and Broadway. When officers arrived, they found that a shot had been fired into the structure. She says the investigation is active and that there aren't any suspects at this time. There is a vehicle of interest. Officials from the Obama campaign in Colorado didn't have a comment as of this writing.

Here's a close-up of the shattered glass.
