A man shot himself in front of the White House on Saturday, a law enforcement source told CNN.
“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,” the Secret Service tweeted.
“We are aware of the incident,” deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said. “The President has been briefed. I refer you to the Secret Service for any more information.”
The Secret Service tweeted an update on the situation moments later: “No other reported injuries related to the incident at @WhiteHouse.”
The agency added that pedestrian and vehicular traffic around the White House has been affected by the incident.
