WASHINGTON D.C.: The Associated Press (AP) reported that U.S. Secret Service agents protecting President Joe Biden's granddaughter fired shots after three people tried to break into an unmarked Secret Service vehicle late on November 12 in Washington.

Agents encountered "possibly three" people breaking a window on an unoccupied government vehicle, with one agent discharging a weapon and the suspects immediately fleeing the scene, the U.S. Secret Service said in a statement.

"It is believed no one was struck," the Secret Service it added, but it did not confirm whether the agent who fired the weapon was part of a detail to protect Naomi Biden.

The incident occurred shortly before midnight in Washington's Georgetown neighborhood, but "there was no threat to any protectees," the Secret Service said.

A Secret Service spokesman said that due to security reasons, he could not confirm the AP report.
