U.S. President Donald Trump was abruptly escorted by a U.S. Secret Service agent just after the start of a White House media briefing Monday afternoon because of a shooting outside the building. "And it seems very well under control", Trump said.
He said the person was shot off of the White House premises, but right near the fence.
But when asked if the person had been armed, Trump answered: "From what I understand, the answer is yes".
An investigation of the shooting "is ongoing" and "at no time during this incident was the White House complex breached or were any protectees in danger", it said. Asked if he was shaken by the incident, Trump asked reporters: "I don't know". He praised the Secret Service response and said the agency would have more details on the event later.
Trump's lawyers told the judge that the subpoena was served on the president's accountant only after a disagreement arose over whether the subpoena to the Trump Organization required the production of tax returns.
The Secret Service also tweeted confirming an officer-involved shooting at 17th Street Northwest and Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest.
