Trump Briefing Interrupted By Shooting Outside White House, Rushed Away By Secret Service Agents




Secret Service agents abruptly escorted President Trump from the White House briefing room on Monday afternoon.

Trump departed after a Secret Service agent appeared to speak to him at the podium.




Another agent outside the room locked the doors as the White House went on lockdown.

When Trump returned the podium a few minutes later, he informed reporters that someone had been shot outside the White House by Secret Service agents.

“It seems that the person was shot by Secret Service, so we’ll see what happens,” Trump said.

“The world has always been a dangerous place,” Trump said. “Not something that is unique. You look back over the centuries, the world has been a dangerous place, very dangerous place, and it will continue, I guess, for a period of time.”




Video shared to social media shortly after the shooting appears to show the suspect down on the ground surrounded by police and first responders.
