Congressman Gene Green - Gun shots were fired at the office of Congressman Green, knocking out windows in Houston, Texas, on Tuesday morning.

A police spokeswoman said officers were called just after 11 a.m. to the 200 block of North Sam Houston Parkway East. Workers in the building originally thought they heard a car backfiring. That’s when they discovered a broken window at Green’s office.

Local police are investigating the incident, and are not ruling out that the shots may have been the result of a BB or pellet gun of some kind. The individual who called in the report did not state that they heard gunshots. It did not immediately appear that Green was a target.

Raymond Eugene “Gene” Green, 63, is the U.S. Representative for Texas’s 29th congressional district, serving since 1993. He is a member of the Democratic Party. The district includes most of the east side of Houston, along with large portions of Houston’s eastern suburbs.
