Huffinton Post: Gene Green: Shots Fired At Congressman's Houston, Texas Office


August 30, 2011- Two shots were fired at the windows of Rep. Gene Green's (D-Texas) office in Houston on Tuesday morning, according to a spokeswoman for the lawmaker.

Houston's Fox News affiliate reports: 

There were no injuries, and the congressman was not in his office at the time.

A spokeswoman tells FOX 26 News police were called just after 11 a.m. to the 200 block of North Sam Houston Parkway East. Workers in the building originally thought they heard a car backfiring. That's when they discovered a broken window.

Local police are investigating the incident, and are not ruling out that the shots may have been the result of a BB or pellet gun of some kind. The individual who called in the report did not state that they heard gunshots.

It did not immediately appear that Green was a target.
