Shots Fired into GOP Campaign Office in Florida

(Joe Skipper/Reuters)

At least four shots were fired into a Republican campaign satellite office in Volusia County, Fla. on Sunday, police announced after a campaign volunteer reported the shooting Monday morning.

No one was injured in the shooting, which broke the front windows and displaced drywall inside the office, South Daytona police captain Mark Cheatham told the Orlando Sentinel. There were no eyewitnesses, but police are seeking surveillance footage to try and determine who is responsible.

The incident comes after an anti-Trump gunman murdered eleven congregants at a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday morning. The alleged assailant, Robert Bowers, who eventually surrendered to police, reportedly yelled “all Jews must die,” during the attack.

Also, A number of prominent Democratic lawmakers and wealthy liberal donors were targeted by mail bombs last week. Police have identified the attacker as Cesar Sayoc, a middle-aged Florida man and outspoken Trump supporter.

President Trump — whose rhetoric has been blamed for the attacks by many in the media, as well as Democratic lawmakers — called the spate of violence “despicable” in a statement last Wednesday.

“In these times we have to unify,” he said. “We have to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.”
