Gunfire hit the Boston police headquarters on Monday evening, breaking a window in the building but causing no injuries, according to Boston police.

Sergeant Detective John Boyle said the building, located at 1 Schroeder Plaza in Roxbury, “sustained ballistic damage.” The incident occurred at about 6:50 p.m. It was not immediately clear how many shots were fired, he said.

It was unclear whether the shots were fired at the building intentionally, Boyle said: “That’s part of the investigation.”

Two police officers stepped into the cold about 8 p.m. to peer around the back of the building. A police vehicle sat idling with its lights on.
