RNC Claims Gunshot Fired Into GOP Field Office During Local Trump Campaign Event, but Police say Damage ‘Not Believed to be Caused by Firearm’

The Republican National Committee told Fox News they believe a gunshot was fired through a window of a GOP office in Mohave County, Arizona during a Trump Victory event Thursday night, but local police say they don’t believe the shattered glass was caused by a firearm.

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.

“On Thursday, May 28, at about 7:20 p.m., police were called for a report of a weapons offense,” the spokesperson told Fox News. “The investigation revealed that an unknown object penetrated through the window and blinds. At this time, police do not know what caused the damage to the glass window; however, it is NOT believed to be caused by a firearm.”

“Six people were inside the building at the time. No one was injured. There are no suspects identified. No one was seen in the area or fleeing,” the spokesperson continued. “The case is still under investigation.”
