An interesting scene at The White House on Monday as President Trump has been out for less than a minute when Secret Service agents told him to leave the briefing room, and put the White House on lockdown.
President Donald Trump was rushed out of the White House briefing room Monday evening and later said the Secret Service had shot someone nearby.
The Secret Service can confirm there has been an officer involved shooting at 17th Street and Pennsylvania Ave. Law enforcement officials are on the scene. More information to follow.
After he returned to continue his coronavirus response briefing, Trump said he had been taken to the Oval Office by the Secret Service and told reporters that law enforcement had shot someone outside the White House.
“There was a shooting, law enforcement shot someone, seems to be someone, and the suspect is on the way to the hospital,” Trump said as the briefing restarted following the sudden, but brief, lockdown.
A huge Thank You and a job well done to our amazing and wonderful Secret Service protecting the President today!
