(MENAFN) The U.S. Secret Service has revealed that right in front of the White House, a man has shot himself dead.

Officers have received calls "of a person who allegedly suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound along the north fence line," leading for the White House to be on lockdown.

The Secret Service issued a statement, confirming "(he) removed a concealed handgun and fired several rounds, none of which appear at this time to have been directed towards the White House."
