Sup. Ct. Bodyguard Shoots THUG!

( – In a new case of a street thug coming in contact with the consequences of the left’s soft-on-crime policies, a bodyguard for US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor shot an alleged carjacker outside Sotomayor’s residence in Washington, DC.

Two deputy US Marshals engaged and shot an individual attempting to carjack them while they were assigned to protect Sotomayor’s home, according to authorities, cited by The New York Post.

The marshals were stationed outside Justice Sotomayor’s home in the northwest area of the capital on July 5, when 18-year-old Kentrell Flowers allegedly approached their vehicle at approximately 1:15 a.m., brandishing a firearm at one of the agents, as reported by the US Marshals Service.

In response, one of the marshals drew his weapon and discharged multiple rounds at Flowers, with the second marshal also opening fire.

Following the confrontation, Flowers, a resident of Southeast DC, was apprehended and subsequently received medical treatment at a local hospital for injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

It was noted that Justice Sotomayor was not present at her residence during the attempted carjacking, a source revealed.

The investigation into the shooting is currently being conducted by detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department, who have successfully recovered a semi-automatic handgun from the incident site.

“The Deputy US Marshals involved in the shooting incident were part of the unit protecting the residences of US Supreme Court justices,” stated the US Marshals office.

Charges have been filed against Flowers, including armed carjacking, unauthorized possession of a firearm, and possession of a high-capacity magazine.

Both the US Marshals office and the Metropolitan Police Department have withheld further comments on the ongoing case.

This event is the latest in a sequence of prominent carjackings targeting federal agents and distinguished individuals in the nation’s capital.

In the previous year, Secret Service agents safeguarding President Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi, were compelled to use their firearms against a group attempting to infiltrate an unmarked vehicle under their charge.

These officials encountered three individuals trying to access the parked vehicle in Naomi’s Georgetown neighborhood shortly before midnight on November 12.

Additionally, in January, a tragic incident occurred involving Mike Gill, a former official from the Trump administration, who was fatally injured by a carjacker while seated in his vehicle on K Street around 5:45 p.m.
