A member of the U.S. Secret Service, who was on administrative leave, was shot dead in Washington D.C. on Tuesday.
Arthur Baldwin was an agent for the uniformed division, and was shot several times in the 4700 block of 1st street. When police found his body he was initially unconscious, but was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a local hospital.
Authorities were seeking three men in connection with the shooting, which occurred around 2:50 p.m. Police are offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information on the killing.
“The Secret Service is aware of this information — we express our condolences to the family of our employee,” agency spokeswoman Nicole Mainor said Wednesday. She referred questions about the incident to the Metropolitan Police Department.
Baldwin had been assigned to the Foreign Missions Branch and was placed on administrative leave earlier this year following a domestic dispute.
He had been charged with first-degree attempted burglary and destruction of property after kicking down a door during a fight with his former girlfriend, leading to the suspension.
