Secret Service Agent Guarding Naomi Biden Fires Weapon During Attempted Break-in of Government Vehicle in Georgetown

Naomi Biden, the granddaughter of President Joe Biden, and her husband Peter Neal.

A Secret Service agent discharged a service weapon late Sunday night in Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown neighborhood, following an attempted break-in of a parked, unoccupied government vehicle. According to a Secret Service statement, three individuals were observed attempting to break a window of the vehicle. The incident occurred near the residence of Naomi Biden, President Joe Biden’s granddaughter, with whom the agents were on duty at the time.

The Secret Service, in coordination with the Metropolitan Police Department, is investigating the incident. Sources familiar with the situation confirmed that no one was struck by the gunfire and the suspects fled the scene in a red vehicle. A regional lookout has been issued to assist in locating the suspects.

The latest Metropolitan Police Department data indicates a significant rise in motor vehicle thefts in Washington, up 98% year-to-date, although thefts from vehicles have slightly decreased. This incident adds to a series of recent car-related crimes in the area, including the carjacking of U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas near the Capitol.

Naomi Biden, 29, a lawyer at Arnold & Porter and daughter of Hunter Biden and his ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle, was not present during the incident but was informed about it afterward. She recently married Peter Neal in a White House ceremony in November 2022.

The Secret Service emphasized that there was no threat to any protectees during the incident.
