LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police are investigating an act of vandalism at the Westside office of President Barack Obama.
Just days before a scheduled visit to the Southland, police say that someone or some group shot BB-gun pellets through a window Thursday evening. They also said an object was thrown through the broken window.
No staffers were in the office at the time of the shooting, say authorities. The President’s office is located on the 6700 block of South Centinela Avenue.
A person who was in the area of the office reportedly heard the shots and the sounds of glass breaking and called police about 7:30 this evening.
Officials did not announce if they had a description of the suspect or whether the shooting was captured on surveillance video.
Officers arriving at the scene reported seeing numerous BB pellets.
An investigation involving several different law enforcement agencies has been initiated.
