The shocking attack happened at approximately 9:36 PM on Saturday as the Secret Service agent was returning back from a work assignment.

Even more startling was the fact that the agent reportedly opened fire and “discharged their service weapon during the incident,” according to USSS spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi.

Although the agent was not injured during the robbery at gunpoint, it remains unclear if the suspected assailant was hit by the agent’s gunfire.

“We are thankful that the employee did not sustain any injuries,” Guglielmi said in a statement regarding the Secret Service agent shortly after the incident.

Meanwhile, the Tustin Police Department confirmed that the attack happened at approximately 9:36 PM on Saturday as the Secret Service agent was returning back from a work assignment in the city of Tustin.

“During this encounter, a federal agent discharged a service weapon, and it is believed no one was struck,” the USSS spokesperson continued. “The offenders immediately fled the scene in a red vehicle and a regional lookout was issued to supporting units.”
