Depends on what he was doing before he was ambushed.
Best bet is that he was traveling, possibly on his motorcycle. On his way to or back from a mission, so he has his gear, and then he finds himself. He has uniform nearby, but he can't get dressed then and there. He can, however, get ahold of his shield much quicker.
