Shots were fired late Sunday night after three individuals tried to break into a Secret Service SUV being used by agents protecting President Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi.
The Associated Press reported that the incident occurred in Georgetown, when the agents “saw the three people breaking a window of the parked and unoccupied SUV.”
One of the agents opened fire, causing the three individuals to flee in a red vehicle.
FOX News noted that the Secret Service released a statement on the incident, indicating, “There was no threat to any protectees and the incident is being investigated by the DC Metropolitan Police Department and the Secret Service.”
