President Obama's West Los Angeles campaign office was vandalized Thursday evening, according the Los Angeles Police Department.


An LAPD spokeswoman told the Los Angeles Times a person "reported hearing glass breaking and noticed that windows were broken." No one was in the office, which is in the 6700 block of South Centinela Avenue, at the time. She said that BB gun pellets may have been fired through the window.

Police have no suspects.

Obama is scheduled to visit Los Angeles next week to attend fundraising events for his 2012 campaign.
