At approximately 3pm ET, a person with a gun was spotted outside the White House. The person was commanded to drop the weapon but did not listen. This prompted a Secret Service Agent to fire at the person. The bullet struck the person in the stomach and is now in critical condition in a nearby hospital.
The shooting caused Secret Service to place the White House on lockdown. At the time of the shooting Vice President Joe Biden was in the White House and moved to a highly secure area. President Barrack Obama was not in the White House at the time. He was at a nearby golf course playing a round of golf.
