An unknown shooter targeted the storefront office of the D.C. Republican Committee Wednesday morning, cracking the windows of the building with an air gun-like small-caliber projectile, The Washington Post reported.

“I was getting lunch, and noticed: Oh my god, our windows are all shot up,”  Paul Craney, executive director of the D.C. Republican Committee, told The Washington Post.

Craney discovered a BB-sized piece of shot on the ground outside the window and said he believes someone specifically targeted the D.C. GOP office. He said the hair salon neighboring the office did not see any of the damage.

The office is located near 13th and K Street, NW. Craney said his landlord contacted the police.

“There were multiple shots,” Craney told The Washington Post. “Whoever did it took some time to take out our windows.”
