Police in Louisville, Ky., have arrested a man they believe fired multiple shots at a local mayoral candidate on Monday morning.

Craig Greenberg, who is Jewish, was in his campaign headquarters at the time of the attack.

He was uninjured in the shooting, according to the statement by the Louisville Metro Police Department. They added that no one on Greenberg’s staff was injured.

“A person of interest matching the suspect description was identified and taken into custody shortly after the incident,” police said in a statement. “There is no known motive at this time, and it is believed the suspect acted alone. Detectives are actively investigating, and more information will be forthcoming.”

In a Twitter post, Greenberg wrote: “My team and I are fortunately all safe. We are with the Louisville Metro Police Department now. I will provide an update as soon as possible. Thank you for the outpouring of support.”
