A 19-year-old Maryland man has been identified as the decedent in an officer-involved shooting at the residence of the Peruvian Embassy Ambassador.
On April 20 at approximately 7:57 a.m., members of the United States Secret Service responded to the occupied residence for the report of a burglary in progress, according to a press release. There, they found multiple broken windows and the suspect, Gordon Casey, in the backyard with a metal pole. Officers ordered Casey to drop the pole and one of them fired a taser at him, but it did not work. Two officers then fired their pistols at Casey, who died from his injuries.
