Breaking news is coming out of the White House today regarding an incident that just took place on Saturday in front of the building. This isn’t the first time the White House has been on high alert. Back in November, the White House was placed on lockdown due to “suspicious activity.”

It was just reported that a man shot himself along the north fence line of the White House. Secret Service tweeted:

‘Secret Service personnel are responding to reports of a person who allegedly suffered a self-inflicted gun shot wound along the north fence line of @WhiteHouse.’

Mr. Trump and First Lady Melania are at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, and will return on Saturday night for the annual Gridiron Club Dinner. Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said:

‘We are aware of the incident. The President has been briefed. I refer you to the Secret Service for any more information.’

The Secret Service tweeted an update a little while later, saying:

‘No other reported injuries related to the incident at @WhiteHouse.’
CNN reported:
‘Secret Service spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan said the incident occurred on the north fence line, the victim suffered a single gunshot wound and Secret Service personnel did not fire any shots. She would not comment on the status of the victim.
‘The agency also tweeted that pedestrian and vehicular traffic around the White House has been affected by the incident.’
CNN reports that they may have more details later as the incident is just breaking. There is not other information at this time.
