FBI officials say shootings of two offices for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Antonio early Tuesday morning were a “targeted attack” against employees, media outlets report.

No injuries were reported, and police were still looking for suspects, media outlets report.

Though the offices are located in commercial buildings with other businesses, Combs said it was obviously an attack on ICE officials, and bullets nearly hit a federal official, according to KSAT.

“I don’t think there is a question that they knew which floor the ICE office is on,” Combs said at a news conference, according to KSAT. “To fire indiscriminately into any building is not an act of a protest but an act of violence.”

FBI officials say they’re concerned there could be more attacks, WOAI reported.

“ICE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe,” Daniel Bible, the San Antonio field office director of enforcement and removal operations, said in a statement to KVUE. “This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers’ safety at risk.”
