Nationalist Review just reported that a shooting incident occurred during a White House press briefing delivered by President Trump. The president was quickly removed from the room but later returned to explain the situation. We now have video of the alleged suspect who was incapacitated by law enforcement and transported to a local hospital.
President Trump’s remarks on the matter were brief:
“There was a shooting outside of the White House and it seems to be very much under control. I’d like to thank the Secret Service for their always quick and very effective work but their was an actual shooting and somebody was taken to the hospital. I don’t know the condition of the person but it seems that the person was shot by Secret Service. There are no details, we just found out right now. It was outside of the White House. It seems that the shooting was done by law enforcement at that person.”
More updates to follow.
