WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. Secret Service says multiple gunshots were fired from a vehicle near the Delaware home of Vice President Joe Biden last night. Officials say the vice president and his wife were not at home at the time of the shooting.

The home in Wilmington is several hundred yards from the main road and a Secret Service spokesman says the shots were fired outside the secure perimeter. Investigators have been searching outside the Biden residence and nearby houses to determine if any rounds hit anything.

The shots were heard by Secret Service personnel, who saw the vehicle drive past the home at a high rate of speed and flee the scene.

The Secret Service says about 30 minutes later, an individual in a vehicle tried to pass a New Castle County police officer securing the outer perimeter of the area. That person was arrested for resisting arrest and will be questioned regarding the shooting to determine if he was involved.

The Secret Service and the New Castle County Police are investigating the incident.
