A secret service agent, Joe Biden’s granddaughter, opened fire on suspects trying to break into a government vehicle.
The suspects escaped as soon as they heard the gunshots, but the investigation was underway.
The BBC quoted police officials saying the suspects ran in a red car without anyone being hit.
Vehicle Was Parked Outside
According to the initial reports, the government vehicle was parked outside Joe Biden’s granddaughter Naomi Biden.
The secret services spotted three people breaking into a car on 12 November around midnight local time.
The CBS reported that Noami was not on the scene when the secret services opened fire on the suspects.
Investigation is Underway
The Secret Service said they were investigating the incident jointly with the DC Metropolitan Police Department.
“There was no threat to any protectees and the incident is being investigated by the DC Metropolitan Police Department”, the Secret Service said.
