BREAKING: White House on LOCKDOWN as 'shots fired'

Source: Daily Star UK

According to people inside the White House, a number of shots were fired near the North Lawn.

A "code red" has been declared, meaning no one can move in or out the building.

One person has tweeted saying they just saw a person gunned down in the building, although this has not been verified.

The US President Donald Trump is currently in Florida with his wife Melania and son Barron and has been made aware of the situation unfolding.

The US Secret Service tweeted: "Personnel are responding to reports of a person who allegedly suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound along the north fence line of @WhiteHouse."

1. Trump is at Merde-a-Loco, as usual.

Since hardly anyone works at the WH any more, I doubt anybody is in danger.

38. He's got to make up for the games he missed because of those damned kids and their shooting.

How rude of them, getting themselves shot and ruining his golf.

Now he's got to spend his time pretending to care while still mollifying the NRA. Whew! IQ45 deserves to take a break and get out of town -- and make some money for his resort.

He's probably in Florida to huddle with his staff -- what's left of it -- and figure out how to walk back (without appearing to do so) every one of the proposals he made during that photo op meeting with the Dems and Repugs , and how to blame Obama and crooked Hillary for the kids trying to take away his supporters' guns.

So much work, presidenting.

Person suffers self-inflicted gunshot wound near White House, Secret Service says

By John Woodrow Cox March 3 at 12:22 PM

A man apparently shot himself along the north fence line of the White House midday Saturday, according to the Secret Service, which also said he was being treated for the wound.

No one else was injured, although there were reports that people at the White House sheltered in place.

This is a developing story. Check back soon for more updates.

he wanted to take the guns and then due process. In his mind all he heard was that "they" were going to take his guns away. He then lead a group of one to the WH.

...is one of Trump's inner circle decided to commit suicide, but didn't have the common courtesy to not do it over the historic, blood-absorbing, marble floors in the White House.
