A single shot was fired through the window ofÂ President Barack Obama’s Denver campaign office Friday, according toÂ police.

Lopez says she isn’t aware of any previousÂ threats against the campaign office.
The incident happened at around 3pm,Â according to The DenverÂ Post. Sam Levin, a reporter for theÂ alternative newspaper Westword, later posted a photo on Twitter showing one ofÂ the office’s large, front windows shattered.By early evening, the window shards had beenÂ removed and a glass company was putting plywood up.

Denver was also the site of the firstÂ presidential debate between Mitt Romney and President Obama.
