A man shot himself outside the north fence of the White House in Washington DC on Saturday. An eyewitness recounts two rounds of shooting. On hearing gunshots, people ran for safety. The secret service responded immediately and locked down the white house as a precautionary measure. They are treating the shooting as a suicide attempt. However, no one else was harmed during the shooting. The incident took place while US President Donald Trump was in Florida. Recently, 17 including 14 school children were killed in a firing in Florida.
