Police: Drive-by shooting shatters windows at GOP headquarters in Florida. Matt O'Donnell reports during Action News Mornings on October 30, 2018.

Authorities say the windows of a county Republican Party office in Florida were shot at over the weekend.

Mark Cheatham of the South Daytona Police Department says four shots were fired at the office of the Republican Executive Committee of Volusia County.

County GOP Chairman Tony Ledbetter says the shooting happened sometime after staffers left the office Sunday afternoon and before they returned Monday morning.

Nobody was inside when the shooting took place.

Cheatham says the shooting is being investigated as vandalism until detectives establish a motive.

Ledbetter says it appeared to be by a drive-by shooter. A window was shot out and another had a bullet hole in it.

The office is located in a strip mall in South Daytona, not far from Daytona Beach on Florida's Atlantic Coast.
