Shots were fired outside Vice President Joe Biden's Delaware home on Saturday night.

The vice president was not home at the time.

"A vehicle drove by the vice president's residence at a high rate of speed and fired multiple gun shots," Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback told CNN. "This occurred on a public road outside the established security perimeter. The shots were heard by Secret Service personnel posted at the residence and a vehicle was observed by an agent leaving the scene at a high rate of speed."

While Biden may not have been home when the vehicle sped past spraying bullets, he was originally slated to spend the weekend at home. It was not immediately clear what had changed his plans.
