Secret Service Responds After Man Shoots, Kills Himself Near White House

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump arrive for the State of the Union address at the U.S. Capitol in Washington DC

The White House was placed in lockdown on Saturday after a man reportedly shot himself just outside the fence line. A law enforcement official told CBS News' Pat Milton the man apparently shot himself, and the U.S. Secret Service treated the matter as a suicide attempt.

The U.S. Secret Service reported personnel are responding to reports of a male suffering a self-inflicted gun injury near the White House North Lawn on Saturday.

No one else was reported to be hurt in the shooting. Law enforcement officials have identified him but are not releasing his name at this time, as they look for next of kin.

President Donald Trump was not at the White House at the time.
