Vice President Joseph Biden was the victim of a drive-by shooting when several gunshots were fired out of a vehicle speeding by the home in Greenville, DE on Saturday night, according to federal law enforcement officials.

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.

Well, come on, Jill. I would have thought you of all people would have had a shotgun rigged to shoot through the door, or at least off the balcony. But seriously, Secret Service, get on your game. You’re beyond embarrassing at this point.
