A gunman opened fire outside the headquarters of the San Antonio Police Department in Texas, striking the building but causing no injuries, officials say. The suspect, who is believed to have “specifically targeted” police, remains at large.

The incident happened at about 9:50 p.m. CT on Saturday when multiple gunshots were fired outside the headquarters of the San Antonio Police Department, which is located at 315 South Santa Rosa Avenue off Interstate 35.

“SAPD officers located multiple shell casings at Grahm Alley and S Santa Rosa. A Hispanic male wearing an orange shirt and navy blue pants was seen running from the scene,” police spokesman Sgt. Jesse Salame said. “Bullet impact marks were discovered on the east side of headquarters.”
