U.S. Marshals assigned to protect U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor reportedly shot an alleged carjacker who pulled a gun on them outside her home in Washington, D.C.

The incident happened around 1:15 a.m. on Friday when Kentrell Flowers, 18, pulled up next to the Marshal’s car, approached the driver’s side door, and pulled a firearm on two Marshals who were in the vehicle, The Hill reported.

One of the Marshals quickly drew his weapon and fired several shots at the suspect, hitting him in the mouth, the report said. The suspect was later transported to the hospital and arrested.

The vehicle that the suspect arrived in had been carjacked, police said.

It’s not clear whether Sotomayor, a leftist who was nominated by former President Barack Obama, was home during the incident.

“The Deputy U.S. Marshals involved in the shooting incident were part of the unit protecting the residences of U.S. Supreme Court justices,” Abigail Meyer, a spokesperson for the U.S. Marshals Service, said in a statement. “As a general practice, the U.S. Marshals don’t discuss specifics of protective details.”

Sotomayor has strong anti-Second Amendment views, including believing that the Second Amendment does not protect gun rights at a state level, attacking conservative justices who overruled the federal government’s bump stock ban, and more.
