The Biden crime wave hit close to home for the president's family on Sunday as Secret Service agents fired gunshots at a group of carjackers in Washington D.C.
Three suspects were attempting to break into a parked, unoccupied government vehicle outside the home of Naomi Biden when an agent fired his weapon.
The three goons fled the scene in a red car, the Secret Service said - adding that no one was injured in the incident.
The incident happened around midnight in Georgetown - a wealthy neighborhood in northwestern D.C.
The shooting is under investigation by the Metropolitan Police and will be reviewed by U.S. attorney Matthew Graves, Biden's handpicked prosecutor in the district.
"During this encounter, a federal agent discharged a service weapon and it is believed no one was struck," the Secret Service said.
"The offenders immediately fled the scene in a red vehicle and a regional lookout was issued to supporting units. There was no threat to any protectees and the incident is being investigated by the DC Metropolitan Police Department and the Secret Service."
Although the incident happened near Naomi Biden's home, there is no clear indication the attack was targeted to her.
This appears to be a random crime that happened to come within the orbit of Biden and his family.
Thanks to its liberal leadership, Washington D.C. has experienced a surge in crime, including - sometimes fatal - carjackings. Many of these incidents have involved violent, out-of-control juveniles.
This year alone - and the year is not yet through - there have been over 860 carjackings in D.C., an increase of more than 100% compared to last year.
And yet, the aforementioned Matthew Graves - who is notoriously zealous about going after January 6th defendants - declined to prosecute 56 percent of people arrested for crimes last year.
Although rare, there have been incidents in which politicians in Washington have been victimized by the crime wave that most Americans are living in fear of every day.
Democrat Henry Cuellar was the victim of a carjacking at gunpoint in October, and months earlier, Minnesota Democrat Angie Craig was assaulted at her apartment in D.C.
The Secret Service said there was no threat to anyone in their protection during Sunday's incident, so it's unclear why the shots were fired.
Perhaps this incident will give Joe Biden a newfound appreciation for the Second Amendment? We're not counting on it.
