Justice Sotomayor's Bodyguards Shoot Alleged Carjacker Outside Her Residence

U.S. Marshals Thwart Armed Carjacking Attempt at Justice Sotomayor’s Residence.

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, which occurred around 1:15 a.m. on Friday, involved 18-year-old Kentrell Flowers.

Flowers approached the Marshals' vehicle and pulled a firearm on the two officers inside. One Marshal responded swiftly, drawing his weapon and firing several shots, striking Flowers in the mouth. The suspect was subsequently transported to the hospital and arrested.

Key Points:

  • The suspect's vehicle had been previously carjacked, according to police.

  • The incident took place outside Justice Sotomayor's home, although it’s unclear if she was present at the time.

  • The U.S. Marshals involved were part of the unit dedicated to protecting Supreme Court justices.

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

Justice Sotomayor, a leftist appointed by former President Barack Obama, has consistently held strong anti-Second Amendment views. She believes that the Second Amendment does not protect gun rights at the state level and has criticized conservative justices for overturning the federal government’s bump stock ban, among other issues.

The quick action by the Marshals in this incident highlights the risks faced by those tasked with protecting high-profile figures. Despite her controversial stance on gun control, it was the presence of armed security that ensured the safety of the individuals involved.
