Agent Kelly arrived at Palmer's hotel suite with Aaron Pierce, Berkin and other Secret Service agents that were sent to add an extra layer of security to the Senator. Upon their arrival, they found Palmer was gone, so Kelly and Berkin began talking to a member of Palmer's staff who ran through some items of Palmer's schedule.
Later Agent Kelly stood guard as Palmer met Maureen Kingsley in a third floor conference room. At around 5:40am, he and agent Berkin escorted Palmer to Mike Novick's room on the 12th floor. Just after 6am, Kelly rode with Palmer and Aaron Pierce to a park where Keith Palmer was running. Jimmy was initially ordered to bring Keith in, but at Palmer's request he was made to stand down. David and Keith talked, before Keith continued his jog.
