Security personnel deployed barriers to stop the intruders’ vehicle, which arrived around 9 p.m. ET and failed to follow commands at the base’s Main Gate, the release said. No shots were fired.
The motive behind the incident was not immediately clear.
Both the vice president and second gentleman Doug Emhoff were in Marine Two around 8:51 p.m. ET, according to a pool report, and had left the base per a pool report around 9 p.m. ET. Harris’ office told the pool that her staff and Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Marcia Fudge and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan, who were all traveling with Harris, were safely off the base, according to a pool report at nearly 10 p.m.
President Joe Biden traveled directly back to the White House via Marine One after spending the weekend in Wilmington, Delaware.
The TV pool that was traveling with Biden landed separately at Joint Base Andrews and saw people searching a wooded area with flashlights and several police cars traveling at high speed.
The pool traveling with Biden was safely off the base as of nearly 10 p.m. ET. The pool that traveled with Harris was also off the base as of 11:55 p.m. ET.
