A Secret Service agent guarding one of the President Biden’s granddaughters fired at three individual after witnessing breaking into an unoccupied government vehicle in Washington late Sunday but did not appear to have hit them, according to a senior law enforcement official.
The three people remain at large, and there is no indication that they were aware of the vehicle being a part of the protective detail of Biden’s granddaughter Naomi Biden, when they smashed the window, at around 11.30 pm in the upscale Georgetown section of the city.
A spokesperson for the Secret Service said in a statement, “During this encounter, a federal agent discharged a service weapon and it is believed no one was struck.” The statement also confirmed that the encounter involved three individuals, who were trying to break in into an parked and unoccupied government car.
Without mentioning who the “protectees” were, the statement confirmed that they were not harmed. Later, it was confirmed by a senior law enforcement official that it was Ms. Biden.
Ms. Biden, 29, is the daughter of Hunter Biden. She married Peter Neal last year in a ceremony on the South Lawn, which makes her the first ever granddaughter to married at the White House.
