CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The FBI has opened an investigation into a shots fired into Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in San Antonio.

San Antonio's KSAT.com reports that shots rang out at around 3 a.m. Tuesday. There were federal employees on the premises, but no one was injured.

Officials said they consider the incident a “targeted attack.”

Christopher Combs, special agent in charge of the FBI’s San Antonio division, said that if the shots had been “two inches in another direction, we could be talking about the murder of a federal official.”

Combs said the FBI currently isn’t sure how many suspects were involved in the shooting, but that he believes they “did some research” and targeted the facility.
