Shots fired at NY senator's office

Westchester County police are trying to find out who fired two shots through the windows of Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins' office. It happened twice last month; the senator's Yonkers office also was ransacked.

Senate Minority Leader Malcolm Smith of Queens is seeking the public's help. He is asking them to come forward with information about the incidents.

Stewart-Cousins' spokeswoman, Allyson Felix, says that in one case, a bullet shattered the glass of the second-floor office while a staffer was sitting nearby.

Felix would not say whether the senator was in the office at the time of the incidents.

Stewart-Cousins, a first-term Democratic senator who won a tight election contest in 2006, is planning to seek re-election in November.
