Shots Fired At Texas Congressman’s Office

HOUSTON, Aug. 30 (UPI) — Police were investigating an incident in which two shots were fired at U.S. Rep. Gene Green’s office in Houston, a spokesman for the Texas Democrat said.

The spokesman said no one was injured and Green was not in the office when shots were fired at the office windows, KRIV-TV, Houston, reported Tuesday.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Department said the shots could have come from a BB gun or pellet gun.

It was unclear whether Green was a target of the shots, KRIV reported. The station said workers in the building who heard the gunfire initially thought it was a car backfiring, and then discovered a broken window.

Police received a call about the shots just after 11 a.m., but the caller did not say gunshots, KRIV said.

The sheriff’s department and the Houston Police Department were investigating.

A television facility and an employment office are also located in the building.
