Shots Fired at Texas Democrat's Office

Must be one of those radical tea partiers we keep hearing about. Or maybe not, but surely our friends on the left will shoot first (so to speak) and blame them anyway.
An investigation is underway after someone fired two shots at the windows of Congressman Gene Green’s office Tuesday morning, a spokeswoman for the congressman says.

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

Police were called just after 11 a.m. to the 200 block of North Sam Houston Parkway East, the spokeswoman said.

Workers in the building originally thought they heard a car backfiring. That's when they discovered the broken window.

It did not immediately appear Green was a target.

The Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Department responded to the call and are investigating.

HPD tells FOX 26 News they are not ruling out the possibility that the gunshots may be the result of a BB or pellet gun of some kind. The original caller did not state that they heard gunshots.

Green, a Democrat, is the U.S. Representative for Texas's 29th congressional district.

Are car backfires that common nowadays that anyone would think they were hearing one?
