BREAKING: Shots Fired At The White House, FBI Swarm The Scene

Donald Trump, Gun Culture, News

On Saturday just after noon local time, the Secret Service responded to gunshots at the White House, apparently the product of someone near the North Lawn suffering a self-inflicted gunshot wound, CBS reports.

There were no other injuries reported, and media on location at the White House were told to shelter in place, so pictures were limited. Tweets came out during the incident from the Secret Service and from reporters on the scene:

The president, fortunately for him, is spending his 133rd day of the presidency golfing. Were Trump not quite so intent on spending at least a third of his time visiting Mar-a-Lago and his other golf properties, he may have been home in the White House at the time, which would have created breaking news, we’re certain, on every major network.

Law enforcement agencies, of course, responded immediately and cleared the scene, although reporters were sent down to the White House basement, according to the CBS report.

This is a breaking story, so we will issue updates as necessary, but again, the president is once again in Florida playing golf while guns are going off, so this incident may now be contained entirely.
