Last week, near Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor's home, two US Marshals engaged in a shooting incident involving an armed carjacker, identified as 18-year-old Kentrell Flowers. The officers, who were on a protective detail at the time, were sitting in an unmarked government vehicle wearing agency uniforms when Flowers approached their vehicle pointing a pistol into the front window.

Following the encounter, the officers fired their weapons multiple times, resulting in Flowers sustaining non-life-threatening injuries to the mouth. Flowers received immediate first aid before being taken to a hospital for treatment and subsequently placed under arrest. The court documents indicate that Flowers is facing charges related to armed carjacking, carrying a pistol without a license, and possessing a large-capacity ammunition feeding device.

While the court documents do not specify Justice Sotomayor's involvement, the US Marshals Service confirmed that the officers were part of the unit responsible for protecting the residences of US Supreme Court justices. The shooting incident is currently under investigation by the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department Force Investigations Team, and their findings will be reviewed by the US Attorney's Office. This event underscores the growing concerns about the safety of Supreme Court Justices, as evidenced by recent threats and the increase in security measures, including additional funding requested for security in the court's 2025 budget.
