The Secret Service says multiple gunshots were fired from a speeding car on Saturday night near Vice President Joe Biden’s residence in Delaware but the vice president and his wife, Jill, were not home at the time.
“A vehicle drove by the vice president’s residence at a high rate of speed and fired multiple gunshots. This occurred on a public road outside the established security perimeter. The shots were heard by Secret Service personnel posted at the residence and a vehicle was observed by an agent leaving the scene at a high rate of speed,” Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback told CNN.
The gunman got away.
But the Secret Service said said local police arrested a man in a vehicle who attempted to pass an officer securing the outer perimeter near the Bidens’ house. CNN said was not not currently tied to the incident.
“While the incident scene was being searched at approximately [9 p.m.], an individual in a vehicle attempted to pass a New Castle County police officer who was securing the outer perimeter of the area. As a result of the interaction with the officer, this individual was arrested for resisting arrest,” Hoback said.
