A teenager was shot by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor's bodyguards during an attempted carjacking in Washington, DC last week. Deputy US Marshal Black, to whom the unmarked government vehicle belonged, opened fire on the suspect, 18-year-old Kentrell Flowers, after he rolled up to the justice's home, got out, and brandished a firearm while demanding that the vehicle be turned over to him.

After receiving treatment for his wounds at a nearby hospital, Flowers was arrested. He was subsequently charged with armed carjacking, carrying a pistol without a license, and possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device. 

According to a statement of facts obtained by the Daily Mail, the incident took place shortly after 1:15 eeam on Friday July 5. At that time, Flowers drove up to Sotomayor's residence on the 2100 block of 11th Street in a silver minivan before proceeding to jump out and walk over to Black, who was sitting in his vehicle. Flowers pulled out a Smith & Wesson 40VE handgun and pointed it directly at Black, at which point the Marshal drew his government-issued firearm and fired four shots. 

Flowers was struck in the mouth, and received first aid treatment from Black before being transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. At the same time, the driver of the silver minivan, which was believed to have been stolen, fled the scene. Neither the vehicle, nor the occupant, have been tracked down.

During their investigation, authorities discovered that the weapon alleged to have belonged to Flowers had zero rounds in the chamber, but eight rounds of .40 caliber ammunition in a magazine with a capacity of 13. The United States Marshals Service has continued looking into the agent-involved shooting, and confirmed that Black and his colleague were part of the Supreme Court justices' security detail.
