A Secret Service officer accused earlier this year of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home was shot and killed in Southwest D.C. Tuesday during a suspected robbery gone awry, according to NBC Washington.
Arthur Baldwin, 30, a resident of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, was unarmed when he was shot multiple times around 2:50 p.m., the report says.
He had most recently been assigned to the White House, but was on leave during a probe into charges stemming from the allegations by his ex-girlfriend, notes the report.
Police said they believe Baldwin was a victim of an attempted robbery. They said they don’t believe his slaying has anything to do with his job or a charge against him stemming from an alleged break-in at his ex-girlfriend’s home earlier this year.
Baldwin was not armed when he was shot, police said.
Police are looking for three people in connection with Baldwin’s killing. Earlier Wednesday, they said they were also looking for a silver or gray car, but that car turned out to be the victim’s car, they said.Police are searching for three people in connection with the shooting.
Baldwin had a wife and three children, writes the news outlet.
