Who attacked the ambassador’s house in DC?
The man who died after entering the gardens of the residence of the Peruvian ambassador in Washington on Wednesday of last week where he broke glass windows and damaged doors with a metal device was identified by the United States Secret Service in a statement.
This is Gordon Casey, 19, of Germantown, Maryland, the document states.
Agents of the Secret Service – the body that has jurisdiction over embassies and diplomatic residences in the country – shot and killed Casey by not complying with repeated orders to drop the metal device he was brandishing and after they tried to subdue him with a Taser gun, accurate.
When he “continued to charge the officers with his weapon,” two Secret Service officers fired
to Casey, as reported by DC Police Chief Robert Contee during a press conference on the same Wednesday of last week. The intruder died at the scene.
Secret Service agents were called by the Peruvian ambassador in Washington after residence staff informed him of the intruder’s attack, before 8 am Wednesday, apparently for attempted robbery. The property is located in the 3000 block of Garrison Street Northwest.
Neither the ambassador, his family, the ambassador’s staff, nor any member of the Secret Service were injured during the incident.
