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.
