BREAKING: Secret Service Responds To Shots Fired Outside White House – One Person Critically Injured

Share this:

The Secret Service mobilized in response to reports of gunshots outside of the White House Saturday morning.

According to the Secret Service Twitter account, one person was injured in what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Secret Service members were not forced to return fire.

No other people appear to be injured.

A One America News cameraman caught video of people fleeing Lafayette Plaza — just north of the White House grounds — in the immediate aftermath of the situation.


Reporters at the White House were told to shelter in the briefing room.


Fox News has footage of responders on the scene.

Traffic patterns around the White House have been interrupted as Secret Service conduct an investigation.

President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron are all currently in Florida, although POTUS was scheduled to return to Washington, D.C. Saturday evening to deliver a speech.

The President has allegedly been briefed on the situation, per White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley.

Fox News reports that the situation appears to have ended, as Secret Service responders are not carrying rifles.

This is a developing story.
