The White House Is On Lock Down

The North Lawn of the White House has been placed on lockdown though the cause was not immediately clear. President Barack Obama is currently at the presidential complex. (more)

The incident began at around 12:15 p.m. ET on Monday, a few minutes after Obama returned to the White House. It appears that the lockdown is limited to the North Lawn and the Secret Service is investigating.

Other details about what prompted the lockdown were not immediately made available, but HazMat trucks were seen in the area.

The White House has regularly experienced security scares over the past few years, though the incidents usually involve fence jumpers who are quickly taken into custody.
