A bullet whizzed through the door of an empty mosque here, and police were investigating whether a hate crime was committed.

The bullet pierced the aluminum frame of a glass entry door at The Islamic Center of South Texas on Friday afternoon. The mosque was empty at the time and nobody was injured.

The bullet shattered an exit transom window at the other end of the mosque's central hallway, according to police.

"We're sure it's a high-caliber weapon, based on the damage," Corpus Christi police Cmdr. Jesse V. Garcia said.
