DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Shots ring out as someone opens fire on a Dallas office building, and a window belonging to NewsRadio 1080 KRLD is hit.

The bullets went through the outside panes of glass on two floors of the 12-story CBS Radio building off Central Expressway at Fitzhugh Avenue.

One of the windows hit belongs to KRLD promotions director Matt Stacks, who was startled by the sound about 3:15 Friday afternoon.

Stacks initially thought a bird hit the 5th floor window. “I just heard a loud boom. I turned around and looked at my window and noticed it started splintering out and saw some stuff falling from the window above.”

The bullet shattered the entire outer window of the office located at the corner of the KRLD Newsroom.

Two other bullets hit the window directly above the KRLD newsroom. That office belongs to former police officer and current attorney Pete Schulte. “It sounded like a rifle. It was clearly a loud bang, and as soon as I heard the loud bang the glass shattered in my office.

Nobody was hurt, but the fact the incident happened on a Friday off a busy highway like Central Expressway concerns Schulte.

“If it happens in the middle of the night that’s one thing, but I sit in this office every day. To have a gunshot in the middle of the afternoon with so many cars passing by, that’s unnerving.”

Schulte believes the shots came from the direction of Central Expressway, and were either fired from the freeway, or from the frontage road that the building faces.

Schulte is known for representing high-profile clients like Pilar Sanders, the estranged wife of former Cowboys star Deion Sanders.

It is not clear if Schulte or any of the CBS Radio stations were targets of the shooting. In addition to KRLD, the building also houses offices for CBSDFW.com and radio stations 105.3 The Fan, 103.7 Lite FM, 100.3 Jack FM, 98.7 KLUV and Mega 107.5 FM on various floors.

Dallas Police are on the scene investigating.
