Gunshots Fired From Vehicle Speeding Past Biden’s Delaware Home, but Driver Gets Away.

Biden and his wife Jill weren’t home at the time of the shooting. The Wilmington home is several hundred yards from the main road where the shots rang out, and authorities were searching outside the Biden residence and nearby homes to determine whether any rounds hit anything. This occurred on a public road outside the established security perimeter,” Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback tells PEOPLE. “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.” New Castle Delaware County police, the Secret Service and the FBI are searching to determine if the shots may have struck any buildings on Biden’s property or nearby homes.

The man was later charged with resisting arrest but hasn’t been linked to the shooting – although investigators will be questioning him to see if he is connected to the incident. Less than an hour after the shooting, a man in a vehicle tried to drive past a police officer who was securing the area around the vice president’s home. The agency’s director, Julia Pierson, resigned in October, as the agency came under withering criticism after a man with a knife climbed over the fence in front of the White House and managed to make his way through the North Portico door. But it was really strange, to hear those kinds of shots next to the vice president’s house.” Biden’s neighborhood includes stately stone-and-brick homes along a curving two-lane road that winds through rolling hills.

On Sunday afternoon, half a dozen sport utility vehicles were parked near the entrance of the Bidens’ property, providing a heavy security presence in the area. The Bidens spend many weekends at their Delaware home, and, while he served in the Senate, Biden frequently made a daily commute from Delaware to Washington by train.
