Shooting Incident at White House Sees President Whisked Away by Secret Service

An internal, unnamed source has now said that no weapon was found on the suspect.

In these uncertain times, with unrest in America at an all-time-high for the modern era, the work of the Secret Service has changed dramatically.

Sure, these brave men and women are still operating in a routine, day-to-day fashion, keeping the President and his family safe.  But these days, given the angst and vitriol of the nation at large, the stakes just appear to be a little higher.

That is why an incident that occurred at the White House this week was so shocking and worrisome.

Shortly before 6 p.m., according to an agency statement, the man allegedly approached a Secret Service uniformed officer standing post about a block from the White House grounds, telling the officer that he had a weapon.

“The suspect then turned around, ran aggressively towards the officer, and in a drawing motion, withdrew an object from his clothing,” the agency said. “He then crouched into a shooter’s stance as if about to fire a weapon. The Secret Service officer discharged his weapon, striking the individual in the torso. “

An unnamed source has now stated that no firearm was found on the man.

The event occurred at the same time that the President was beginning a press conference within the White House.  Trump was briefly whisked away by Secret Service officers before returning to the podium and telling the gathered press pool what had happened.
