The agents thought the attack was a random robbery, not an attempt to attack the ambassador.
Secret Service was under fire once two men pretended to be DHS agents and infiltrated the agency.

The Daily Wire reported:
An intruder was fatally shot Wednesday at the home of the Peruvian ambassador, according to police.
As The Washington Post reported, the episode took place before 8 a.m. in Northwest Washington, D.C.
After the incident, the D.C. Police Chief Robert J. Contee III said the members of the Secret Service uniformed division responded to a call about a burglary in progress. When they got to the scene, he said, they discovered a man in the back of the residence, learning that the person had “smashed out several windows to the back side of [the] residence.”
The man was holding a metal stake, and the officers used tasers first, but the “weapons did not take effect,” Contee added. Contee noted that the officers then shot the alleged intruder and he is deceased. He was pronounced dead at the scene. An investigation is ongoing.
