    Concord police were investigating the front entrance of the department's building Sunday after bullet markings were found etched in the facade.

    Law enforcement authorities found the bullet impressions late Saturday after receiving several calls of gunfire near the department's home base at 1350 Galindo St., according to Christopher Blakely, a department spokesman.

    "We’re still looking into whether the Concord Police Department was actually the intended target or whether this happened to be somebody in a vehicle driving by shooting at another person or another vehicle," Blakely said.

    Kareem Muthanna said he had just left Mas Primas Market, where he helps out.

    "We were down the street, walking home," Muthanna said. "Just a couple of shots. "It's pretty concerning since we’re right next to the police station."

    No one was injured and police did not have any information regarding a suspect or suspects, Blakely said.

    "In my 10 years being at the police department, I can’t tell you at any point do I remember someone actually shooting at police department," he said.

    Galindo Street was closed for some time while investigators examined the scene, Blakely said. Police continue to examine surveillance footage in hopes of identifying a potential suspect or uncovering any new information.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Kevin Halm at 925-603-5859.
