    Beaumont police have arrested a man suspected of opening fire at the campaign headquarters of a candidate for Jefferson County sheriff, breaking a window.

    Police say a 19-year-old Vidor man was being held Tuesday facing arraignment on a deadly conduct charge.

    Nobody was hurt Monday night when someone opened fire at the campaign office of Democrat Zena Stephens. She was outside the building when the incident happened.

    Stephens said a BB gun or an air rifle apparently was used in the shooting as other staffers were in the headquarters preparing campaign material for Tuesday's election.

    Authorities are trying to determine a motive for the incident.
