A man is reported to have shot himself outside the White House in Washington, the US Secret Service says.
It tweeted that agents were “responding to reports of a person who allegedly suffered a self-inflicted gun shot wound” outside the north fence.
President Donald Trump is in Florida at his Mar-a-Lago estate. He is scheduled to return to Washington.
On 24 February, a car drove into a security barrier outside the building. A 35-year-old woman was detained.
The Secret Service said that medical personnel were responding to a male victim. It said no one else has been reported injured in the latest incident.
Geoff Bennett, White House correspondent for NBC News, said that journalists were “sheltering” in the press briefing room.
