Fox News’ Jesse Watters posited that the Secret Service isn’t giving the public all the facts about why they got into a shootout with carjackers on Sunday.
A U.S. Secret Service agent who was protecting President Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi, opened fire on suspects who were attempting to break into a car in Washington, D.C.
At approximately 11:58 p.m. on Sunday, Secret Service agents encountered three thieves who were observed smashing a window of a parked and unoccupied government vehicle according to Fox News.
A federal agent reportedly fired their service weapon in response to the potential threat.

Fortunately, it is believed that no one was injured, as no one was struck by the discharged rounds, according to the Secret Service.
Following the incident, the assailants promptly fled the area in a red vehicle, prompting a regional lookout to other agents.
An official statement from the Secret Service said that, “There was no threat to any protectees and the incident is being investigated by the DC Metropolitan Police Department and the Secret Service.”
Meanwhile, Fox News confirmed that the federal agent involved in the incident was specifically assigned to protect Naomi Biden, President Biden’s granddaughter.
According to sources, Secret Service agents were present with 29-year-old Naomi Biden, who is the eldest daughter of Hunter Biden and Kathleen Buhle, in the Georgetown neighborhood at the time of the incident.
It was during this period that they noticed three individuals attempting to break into a parked and unmarked Secret Service SUV.
The suspects were able to get away from the elite agents and are still on the run at the time of publishing.
On the Monday night edition of “Jesse Watters Primetime,” the titular host said that it “didn’t make sense” that the Secret Service would fire their weapons when they’re trained against doing so when their protectee is in the vicinity.
“They say three males were attempting to break into a Secret Service agent’s vehicle in Georgetown, very nice neighborhood, and an agent fired a round at them,” Watters began.
“The Secret Service says they don’t believe anybody was shot, but they’re not sure,” the Fox News star stated.
“So maybe the Secret Service agent missed, which isn’t so great, or maybe he didn’t and there’s a dead or injured carjacker somewhere in D.C. courtesy of Naomi Biden’s Secret Service and these three guys are still at large.”
He told viewers that sources revealed that the agency has “strict shot accountability,” and do fire weapons to protect property.
Watters pointed out that Naomi Biden couldn’t have been inside the car as an agent would have been in the vehicle with her, thus preventing the attempted carjacking.
“Secret Service protocol requires the agents only discharge their weapons if the protectee or themselves are facing imminent and serious danger or death,” he noted.
Watters detailed that the agents are trained not to discharge their weapons around the people they are protecting, as it could spark a misfire, or return fire from assailants.
“Using deadly force to stop a car from being stolen in Georgetown doesn’t make sense. There’s something they’re not telling us,” he speculated.
He also stated that carjackings are so common in the nation’s capital that Mayor Muriel Bowser has created an initiative to distribute free Apple Airtags to residents to help them recover their vehicles if they’re stolen.
“And police are telling people to drive like they’re in a war zone,” he continued. “So drive like you’re in Afghanistan.”
Watters concluded the segment by listing the police’s tips which included driving in the center lane with the doors locked and windows rolled up, while leaving enough room to escape when stopped.
Carjackings and car thefts have been skyrocketing in the nation’s capital, with police reporting over 750 carjackings and over 6,000 reports of stolen vehicles this year alone.
