Reelection campaign headquarters of Democratic US President Barack Obama has come under attack by gunfire in the major city of Denver in the southwestern state of Colorado.

Denver police announced the incident took place Friday afternoon when someone fired a shot through a window of Obama’s campaign office in the city, AP reported on Thursday.

Campaign workers were inside the office at the time of the shooting, according to a police spokesperson, though no one was injured. A large panel of glass at the office was, however, shattered by the shooting.

The police official added that investigators were reviewing videos from surveillance cameras around Obama’s campaign office but have not yet confirmed a description of a vehicle that was allegedly involved in the shooting incident.

No other details surrounding the incidents were released by police as detectives are probing leads.

Meanwhile, the US Secret Service, responsible for the security of US and diplomatic officials in the country, have referred all press questions regarding the shooting to Denver police, who said they were not aware of any previous threats against Obama’s campaign office.
