(SAN ANTONIO, Texas) —  While police departments nationwide remain on edge following last week’s deadly sniper attack in Dallas that left 5 officers dead, the San Antonio Police Department confirmed Saturday that gunfire hit its headquarters.

Multiple shell casings were found across the street from the building, and bullet marks were evident on the east side of the building.

 SAPD told ABC News Saturday in a statement, “At approximately 9:50 p.m. there were reports of multiple shots fired at public safety headquarters. SAPD officers located multiple shell casings at Grahm Alley and S Santa Rosa (directly across the street from HQ)…Bullet impact marks were discovered on the east side of headquarters.”

Police Chief William McManus said his officers are searching for a specific suspect. “A Hispanic male wearing an orange shirt and navy blue pants was seen running from the scene,” he said.
 No one was injured, but police officers inside heard gunshots strike the building, Chief McManus said.

Police vehicles have cordoned off the area as the investigation continues.
