Gunman impersonating US Marshall captured stalking RFK Jr

An armed man accused of impersonating a U.S. Marshal was taken into custody at a Robert Kennedy Jr. campaign event in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

A spokesperson from the LAPD said in a statement to ABC News that a radio call was generated around 4:30 p.m. local time reporting a man with "a loaded gun in a shoulder holster and a badge stating he was a U.S. Marshal." LAPD officers arrived shortly after and arrested the man. The FBI was also present at the scene.

The LAPD said the man never brandished the gun or threatened anyone.


July 28, 2023 -- Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said Friday that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) denied his request for Secret Service protection.

“Since the assassination of my father in 1968, candidates for president are provided Secret Service protection. But not me,” Kennedy said on X, the platform previously known as Twitter.

“Our campaign’s request included a 67-page report from the world’s leading protection firm, detailing unique and well established security and safety risks aside from commonplace death threats,” he added.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. demanded Joe Biden allow him Secret Service protection after an armed gunman was arrested at his campaign spot - just two miles from where his father was assassinated in 1968.

The Democratic presidental hopeful was speaking at a Hispanic Heritage Month event at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles on Friday night when the suspect tried to approach him.

Carrying a US Marshal badge on a lanyard, the man attempted to identify himself as a member of Kennedy's security team.

He was seen wearing two shoulder holsters with loaded pistols with spare ammunition.

Kennedy shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, his thanks for the quick-thinking actions of those around him who were able to intercept the suspect.

'I’m very grateful that alert and fast-acting protectors from Gavin de Becker and Associates (GDBA) spotted and detained an armed man who attempted to approach me at my Hispanic Heritage speech at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles tonight,' Kennedy wrote.

The incident took place less than two miles from the former site of The Ambassador Hotel, 3400 Wilshire Boulevard, where RFK was shot and killed in June 1968 after winning the Democratic California presidential primary.

'I’m still entertaining a hope that President Biden will allow me Secret Service protection,' Kennedy stated after the eerie and scary incident.

'I am the first presidential candidate in history to whom the White House has denied a request for protection.'
