RNC claims gunshot fired into GOP field office,but police say damage 'not believed to be caused

• by By Brooke Singman

An RNC official told Fox News that at around 7:00 p.m., a group of five GOP volunteers were gathered in the Mohave County Republican Office in BullHead City, Ariz., to host an online "MAGA Meet Up" -- an online tool the campaign uses to talk with supporters-- when a gunshot shattered a window near the front door.

The official described the door as being in "extremely close proximity" to where those volunteers were sitting.

The official told Fox News that no one was hurt. The official, who called it a "scary situation," said police are still investigating the individual and their motivation.

But a Bullhead City Police spokesperson told Fox News Friday that they are investigating an aggravated assault and criminal damage incident at the Mohave County Republican Central Committee. But the spokesman said police, at this time, do not believe the shattered window was caused by a firearm.
