MERCER ISLAND, Wash. (AP) — Police say an off-duty Secret Service agent fired a shot at a person he thought was videotaping his daughter through a window at their home at Mercer Island.

Police say the agent went into his backyard Sunday night and identified himself as a police officer. When the suspected peeping Tom made a furtive movement the agent fired.

It’s unknown if the suspect was hit. The person ran off. A track by a Seattle police dog indicated the person went to a street and fled in a vehicle.
