Joint Base Andrews: One arrested with weapon after Vice President Harris arrives, another at large


Security personnel deployed barriers to stop the intruder’s vehicle, which arrived around 9 p.m. ET and did not follow commands at the base’s main gate, the statement said. No shots were fired.

Harris had arrived at the base at 8:47 p.m. ET via Air Force Two, according to pool reports, after traveling to Selma, Alabama, to mark the 57th anniversary of Bloody Sunday.

The motive for the incident was not immediately clear.

Vice President and Second Mr. Doug Emhoff were both in Marine Two at around 8:51 p.m. ET, according to a pool report, and left the base according to a pool report at around 9 p.m. ET. Harris’s office told the pool that his staff and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge, and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Environment Michael Regan, all of whom were traveling with Harris, were safe off base, according to a pool report at nearly 10 p.m.

President Joe Biden returned directly to the White House via Marine One after spending the weekend in Wilmington, Delaware.

The TV pool traveling with Biden landed separately at Joint Base Andrews and saw people searching a wooded area with flashlights and several speeding police cars.

The pool traveling with Biden was safely off base at nearly 10 p.m. ET. The pool that was traveling with Harris was also off base at 11:55 p.m. ET.

CNN has contacted the US Secret Service for comment.
