District GOP Office Windows Shot Out: Report

A small-caliber projectile, possibly from an air gun, shattered several windows at D.C.'s Republican Committee offices, The Washington Post reported.

Paul Craney, the executive director of the committee, told the Post that those responsible are either "people who don't like glass, or people who don't like the Republican Party."

The shooting took place at some point Tuesday night.

Craney said he found a b.b. like piece of metal amid the shattered glass from the store front window.  The Republican Committee's office is located at 13th and K Street in Northwest.

Craney told the Post that he suspected his office was targeted specifically, noting that adjoining businesses had been unharmed.

"Whoever did it took some time to take out our windows," he told the Post.

However, two other businesses in the area each had one of its windows shot out: the restaurant Pret de Manger at 11th and F streets and the Washington Sports Club in the 1300 block of F Street.
