Authorities are looking into an incident involving a man wearing an American flag bandana throwing a Molotov cocktail into the county Democratic Party headquarters in Austin, Texas.

The device failed to ignite when lobbed into the Travis County Democratic Party headquarters early Wednesday morning, officials said. A pile of papers was set ablaze, but employees of a nearby business quickly extinguished it.

Security cameras recorded the incident, which occurred at about 2 am. According to Travis County Democratic Party Chairwoman Katie Naranjo, the suspect left a threatening, politically motivated note.

“Anyone who wears an American flag as a bandana and then throws a Molotov cocktail … into a building and leaves a note, a threatening note, is a coward,” she said.

According to Austin Fire Capt. Brandon Jennings, the man in the video may also be responsible for vandalizing a county administrative building a few hours later.
