A Secret Service agent traveling as part of President Donald Trump's security detail died Tuesday in Scotland after suffering a severe stroke. 

The Secret Service said in a statement the agent died Tuesday morning surrounded by family and coworkers — his "extended Secret Service family."

The agent, a 19-year veteran of the agency, suffered the stroke on Sunday and was treated in Scotland. The Secret Service said the agent was a "dedicated professional of the highest order" and thanked the medical personnel who gave him "exceptional care and support." 

The agent's name was not immediately released to allow for notification of family and to respect their privacy, KSDK reports.
