WASHINGTON - Several gunshots were fired from a vehicle speeding by the home of Vice President Joe Biden in Greenville, Del., on Saturday night, according to federal law enforcement officials.
Secret Service agents and the local police were unable to catch the vehicle as it raced away.
It was not clear whether any of the shots hit Biden's residence, or even if they were aimed directly at the home, which sits roughly 300 yards back from the road, the officials said.
Secret Service agents canvassed the home on Sunday morning for bullet marks. There was no immediate explanation for a possible motive.
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 man resisted arrest, officials said, and was taken into custody and questioned.
