COLLEGE STATION, TX -- Police say gunfire has damaged an Islamic Community Center in Central Texas at a time when the building was unoccupied.

College Station police say nobody was hurt in the incident around 4:30 a.m. Thursday. Nobody has been arrested.

Lt. Steve Brock says officers responded to reports of at least four shots fired. Police discovered a broken window near the main entrance, apparent bullet holes in the glass and other exterior damage.

Brock says investigators are seeking a motive for the gunfire. He says police were not aware of any threats to the Islamic Community Center. The FBI is also investigating.

No damage estimate was immediately released.

Messages left with the Islamic Community Center weren't immediately returned Thursday.

College Station is 90 miles northwest of Houston.
