Shots fired by agents protecting Joe Biden’s granddaughter

In an unexpected turn of events last Sunday evening, Secret Service agents protecting President Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi Biden, drew their firearms after spotting an attempted break-in in an unmarked Secret Service car. The incident took place in Georgetown, Washington D.C.’s upscale neighborhood, ABC News reports.

When Secret Service agents assigned to Naomi Biden noticed three people attempting to break the SUV’s windows, they immediately reacted, while one of them used his service weapon.

The Secret Service claims that the agent involved in the incident was not injured, and that he fired after witnessing the attempted break-in. Fortunately, the vehicle was not occupied at the time. They immediately launched an alert in an area to locate the red car in which the alleged culprits fled.

In a press release, the Secret Service stated that no one was hurt and that the incident occurred just before midnight.

The Secret Service assured the public that there were no threats to Naomi Biden’s protection at the time of the incident.

The Metropolitan Police Department is now investigating the case. This is standard practice for any police-involved shooting in Washington. The U.S. Attorney’s Office is also independently reviewing the evidence and facts in this case.

This crime is part of a larger increase in crimes involving cars in the District.

Washington reported more than 750 car thefts and over 6,500 stolen cars this year.

As the investigation is still ongoing, no details have been released as to the identity of the suspects or the motive behind the attempted break-in.
