WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Secret Service said on Saturday it was responding to a report of a person with a self-inflicted gunshot wound along the north fence line of the White House.

President Donald Trump was away in Florida.

A spokeswoman for the District of Columbia police said they were also responding to the report and declined further comment.
