[su_right_ad]Gunshots were fired Saturday night from a vehicle speeding by the Delaware home of Vice President Joe Biden.

Neither the vice president nor his wife were home at the time of the shooting, which occurred around 8:25 p.m., officials said.

Secret Service and the local police were unable to catch the vehicle as it raced away.

It was not clear whether any of the shots hit Mr. Biden’s residence, or even if they were aimed directly at the home, which sits roughly 300 yards back from the road, officials said.

Secret Service agents were beginning to canvass the home looking for bullet marks on Sunday morning. There was no immediate explanation for a possible motive.

“The Secret Service is working closely with the New Castle County Police on investigating this incident,” said Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the Secret Service.

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, but was taken into custody.

    Why is anyone surprised….this is the result of the hatred and disrespect fostered by FAUX, the NRA , baggers and the rightwing gun nuts. The only surprise is that it didn’t happen sooner

      It has…
      remember past posts at LL?
      car being ran off the road in TN – nothing ‘racist’
      chubby boy in Texas – nothing ‘racist’
      murder of an innocent child in Florida – nothing ‘racist’
      Klevin’s Kowboy Korral roundup with illegal US Military Weapons formerly belonging to local PD’s to “fight terrorist” -nothing ‘racist’
      murdering of black children and men in the streets of America by white PD officers -nothing ‘racist’

      and all because our Hawaiian POTUS has an excellent Maui tan that orange colored White RepubliKlans are so envious of.

        Innocent child in Florida? You are not talking about the 6 ft tall “child” from Sanford are you?

    The most ing about this article is:

    “Secret Service and the local police were unable to catch the vehicle as it raced away.”

    Are you kidding me – this is the Vice President’s home! What kind of people do we have working for the secret service anyway.
    It is an outrage that these Republican terrorists are still at large.

      They may not have been in cars at the time.

    Right wing domestic terrorism is the greatest threat to this country right now. We have tolerated their hate speech, and now we are reaping the backlash.

    • Wayout January 18th, 2015 at 10:35 pm

      No, the greatest threat is left wing everything goes nut George Soros and his newfound “Hands up, don’t shoot” crowd. Of course the Communist Party USA is also involved.

    dumbasses – like you’re really going to scare Joe into doing what you want?


  5. Kim Serrahn January 18th, 2015 at 6:44 pm

    Was bound to happen soon or later.

    Did the perp use the Biden approved shotgun and shooting technique, albeit from a car?

    why is the life of one vp more valuable than the lives of people who live in drive by neighborhoods – when politicians become more important than their constituents, they become detached and have no idea what is happening in the streets and fields of their country.
