An armed man carrying pistols and ammunition who claimed to be part of Robert F. Kennedy’s security detail was quickly detained by authorities after showing up at a California event featuring the presidential candidate, authorities said.
“The man, wearing two shoulder holsters with loaded pistols and spare ammunition magazines was carrying a U.S. Marshal badge on a lanyard and beltclip federal ID,” Kennedy said early Saturday on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. “He identified himself as a member of my security detail.”
Kennedy posted an image of the man, who was wearing a black shirt with a white symbol reading “Emergency Medical Services.”
The man has not been publicly identified.
