A Secret Service officer was killed in Southwest D.C. Tuesday, and police are investigating the case as a homicide.

The victim was identified as Secret Service Uniformed Division Officer Arthur Baldwin, 30. He was shot multiple times in the 4700 block of 1st Street SW at about 2:50 p.m.

D.C. police say officers were flagged down shortly after the shooting and found Baldwin unconscious with multiple gunshot wounds.

He was rushed to a local hospital, where he died.

The Secret Service said Baldwin had been assigned to the White House branch. Baldwin, who lived in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, was on administrative leave at the time of the shooting.

More on Baldwin from FOX 5 DC:

Baldwin was placed on leave and his security clearance was suspended in April after he was charged with trying to break into his girlfriend’s house while armed.

His most recent court appearance was on Tuesday, a few hours before he was slain. He was scheduled for trial in February.
