Trump abruptly leaves coronavirus briefing after shooting near White House

Washington, Aug 11(UNI) President Trump abruptly left the coronavirus press briefing in the White House on Monday after someone fired shots outside the White House, media reported on Tuesday.
being abruptly rushed out of the White House press briefing Monday, President Trump came back to the briefing room,
Shortly after that Mr Trump came back and told reporters that he had been escorted out of the briefing by the Secret Service because there was a shooting outside of the White House, but the situation “seems to be very well under control," CNN reported.
"I'd like to thank the Secret Service for doing their always quick and very effective work, but there was an actual shooting, and somebody's been taken to the hospital. I don't know the condition of the person. Seems that the person was shot by Secret Service, so we'll see what happens," Trump said.
Asked by CNN’s Jeremy Diamond if he was taken to the bunker under the White House, Trump replied, “no, we were taken just out to the oval office.”
The President was also asked if he was rattled, he said, “I don’t know, do I seem rattled?”
The suspect who was shot by Secret Service did not breach “anything,” Trump added.
A senior administration official confirmed to CNN's Dana Bash that there was an active shooter who was now in custody.
The incident happened at the corner of 17th and Pennsylvania Avenue NW, just outside of the White House grounds and close to Lafayette park.
Trump abruptly departed the briefing room after a Secret Service agent approached him as he was speaking to the press and whispered something in his ear. "Sir, we’re just going to have to step outside," the agent can be heard saying.
