A swastika was found painted on the window of President Barack Obama's campaign office in a suburb of Denver, Colorado late Thursday night.

The black Nazi symbol was found painted outside a window of the office, located in the Denver suburb of Conifer, 9News.com reported.

Scott Lorditch, a volunteer at the Conifer campaign office, told The Huffington Post that when he arrived at the office Friday morning, he was told that the vandalism had occurred overnight. 

Obama campaign signs on the office’s front lawn were also shredded, he said. When Lorditch arrived at the office the next morning, the signs had been removed.

The incident came just one week after a gunshot was fired at the same Obama campaign office. While the incident did not result in any injuries, staffers were inside the building at the time of the gunshot.

The Obama campaign declined to comment on both incidents.
