Yet another Texas police department was attacked with gunfire Saturday, and authorities are looking for the person responsible.

Authorities say someone opened fire on the San Antonio police headquarters Saturday night but no one was hurt. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said authorities found “bullet marks” on the wall of the headquarters. Police took one person into custody but said that person is not a suspect. Authorities are searching for another suspect, The San Antonio Express News reports.

“We don’t know what the motive was,” McManus said. “If someone was randomly firing or if they saw a big building and decided to shoot at it, or other motives.”

McManus pointed out the timing with the shooting of police in Dallas was “too coincidental.”

The bomb squad investigated a car left near the crime scene that may be connected. Authorities found shell casings nearby and said the suspect was wearing blue pants and an orange shirt.

The shooting comes as police around the country are on edge after a lone gunman shot 12 Dallas cops, killing five, during a Black Lives Matter protest Thursday. Black Lives Matter protesters angry about the deaths of Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana sparked protests around the country Saturday, with hundreds arrested. Authorities reported that protesters threw bottles, bricks, fireworks and more at cops.
