The White House press corps are on lockdown at the White House. Unclear what sparked it, but there was some sort of activity on the eastern side of the White House, in Lafayette Park. The press corps was rushed inside and put on notice as well.
According to the secret service “At approximately 2:45 pm an individual dropped a backpack and attempted to jump a bike rack along the sidewalk on Pennsylvania Ave. The individual was immediately taken into custody by Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers.”
The bike rack is supposed to keep people at a distance from the fence that separates Pennsylvania Ave sidewalk from the WH North Lawn to cut down on fence jumpers.
