St. Louis Congresswoman Cori Bush's vehicle was hit by gunfire on Saturday, according to CNN.
Bush's vehicle was in the St. Louis area, and the congresswoman was not in the car at the time, KSDK reports.
KSDK reports that a source close to the congresswoman does not believe Bush was intentionally targeted.
"Like far too many of us in St. Louis, experiencing gun violence is all too familiar," Bush's spokesperson Jack Besser told People in an official statement. "Thankfully, no one was harmed. But any act of gun violence shakes your soul. No one should have to fear for their safety here in St. Louis, and that is exactly why our movement is working every day to invest in our communities, eradicate the root causes of gun violence, and keep every neighborhood safe."
Evidence was found that indicated someone tampered with the car door handles of other cars in the surrounding area at the time the gunfire hit Bush's vehicle, according to KSDK.
