Single Shot Reportedly Fired Near Vice Presidential Home

The Secret Service investigated reports of a possible single gun shot early Monday morning near the United States Naval Observatory, which is the home of Vice President Kamala Harris.

“Secret Service spokesman Lt. Paul Mayhair said that uniformed division officers from the agency responded to those reports at 34th Street and Massachusetts Ave. NW around 1:30 a.m. ET,” per NBC News.

Mayhair said there were no reports of any injuries.

NBC News reported:

“No one was reported to be injured and there is currently no indication that this incident was directed towards any protectees or the Naval Observatory,” Mayhair said. “Roads around the intersection are temporarily closed due to the ongoing investigation.”

Officials on the scene outside the main entrance to the residence Monday morning were examining a stoplight whose top portion had been shattered. The Secret Service had cleared the scene, but surrounding roads had reopened later morning and the affected stoplight remained in use.

Harris, the first female and first Black vice president, and Emhoff were not at the residence at the time. Harris is in Los Angeles with events on her public schedule Monday.
