US President, Donald Trump, has revealed that operatives of the Secret Service guards have shot a person, who was apparently armed, outside the White House.
Naija News understands that Donald Trump was briefly evacuated in the middle of a press conference on Monday.
The US president was swiftly ushered out of the press conference, with secret service agents brandishing automatic rifles rushing across the lawn north of the White House.
Minutes later, Trump reappeared at the press conference, where newsmen had been locked in, and announced that someone had been shot outside the White House grounds.
He said: “Law enforcement shot someone, it seems to be, the suspect. And the suspect is on the way to the hospital.”
The US president stated that he knew nothing about the identity or motives of the person shot.
When asked if the person had been armed, answered: “From what I understand, the answer is yes.”
