Naomi Biden's Secret Service detail fired gun after witnessing vehicle break-in attempt
Driving the news: Secret Service agents encountered "possibly three individuals breaking a window on a parked and unoccupied government vehicle" around midnight in Washington, D.C.'s Georgetown neighborhood, U.S. Secret Service (USSS) spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi said.
- During the encounter, one of the agents their service weapon, though no one was believed to be struck, per the statement.
- "Two to Three possible suspects fled the scene in a vehicle," Guglielmi added in a post on X.
- The D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and the Secret Service are investigating the incident.
Of note: There was "no threat" to the Secret Service agents' protectees, Guglielmi said.
- "For security reasons we cannot confirm protectee details," he told Axios in an email.
The big picture: Carjackings have been on the rise in D.C. in the past several years.
- Last month, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) was carjacked while parking his car outside an apartment building. The Congressman was not harmed in the incident.
