Two shots were fired into the Georgia Department of Labor building, 601 Greene St., according to a report from the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

Manager James Abron told deputies that the shots, which shattered the upstairs window, were fired between 8 a.m. on July 1 and 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

Officers found bullet holes in the window of the conference room as well as the wall, but were unable to find any spent shell casings in the area, according to the report.

No spent casings? Well, it only happened on July 1, and today (Thursday) is July 7th. They may be 3 miles down the road on Greene St.

I'm guessing it happened

I'm guessing it happened while they were closed for the holiday (no one would have noticed the sound of a gunshot with all the fireworks) and they probably don't use the conference room on a daily basis.
