Secret Service agents, responsible for safeguarding President Joe Biden’s granddaughter, fired shots after three individuals attempted to break into an unmarked Secret Service vehicle in the nation’s capital, according to a law enforcement official who spoke with The Associated Press.
The incident occurred late Sunday night in Georgetown while the agents were with Naomi Biden. The individuals were observed breaking a window of the parked, unoccupied SUV.
Although one agent discharged their firearm, no injuries were reported. The three suspects fled in a red car, prompting the Secret Service to issue a regional bulletin for Metropolitan Police to be on alert.
The law enforcement official spoke on the condition of anonymity and couldn’t discuss investigation details publicly.
