Gunman opens fire on office of Democratic lawmaker
The Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Department are investigating two gunshots that were fired through the window of U.S. Rep. Gene Green’s (D-TX) office Tuesday.
Houston Police told Fox 26 that they were not ruling out the possibility the shots could have come from a BB or pellet gun.
The Capitol Police were also investigating the matter, according to Politico.
Thanks to a law signed by Gov. Rick Perry, Texans with concealed-carry permits can bypass the metal detectors when carrying weapons into the Texas Capitol building as of Thursday.
Earlier this year, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was shot in the head outside a Tucson supermarket.
