Reports state that the unidentified pair approached Secret Service officers near 15th Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. on Saturday evening, just before 5:30 p.m. One of the individuals disclosed the possession of a weapon and was immediately detained, the spokesperson said.

Surprisingly, the second individual disclosed the location of an additional weapon in a nearby vehicle. Immediately, Secret Service officers located the car and seized the weapon, the spokesperson said.


In a strange twist, the first individual was arrested for possession of a BB gun, while the second individual was arrested for carrying a pistol without a license, possession of an unregistered firearm, and possession of unregistered ammunition, according to the spokesperson.

“During the course of the encounter and subsequent arrests, the individuals posed no immediate danger to any Secret Service protectee,” the spokesperson told ABC News in a statement late Sunday.
