Shattered Windows, Damaged Drywall: Shots Fired into GOP Office in Florida

Law enforcement officials in South Daytona, Florida, said on Monday that several gunshots were fired into the Volusia County Republican Party’s office, resulting in shattered windows and damaged drywall (pictured above right).

One party official told The Daily Wire he believes the attack was politically motivated.

“We have never had any kind of vandalism before at a Republican headquarters,” Tony Ledbetter (pictured above left), chairman of Volusia County’s Republican Party, said in an email to The Daytona Beach News-Journal, The Daily Wire reported

“It’s a small strip center and no other business was vandalized, so it was obviously politically motivated.”

Law enforcement personnel are investigating the shooting.

“At this point we can confirm that at least four rounds were fired into the building,” South Daytona Police Capt. Mark Cheatham said, according to The News-Journal.

He also said the shooting took place sometime between Sunday evening and Monday morning. “We are working to see if we can get video from nearby businesses, but so far we have no witnesses,” he added.
