A man has shot and killed himself outside the White House in Washington, the Secret Service says.
It said the man approached the White House’s fence on Pennsylvania Avenue just before noon local time (17:00GMT) before taking out a handgun and firing several shots.
No one else was injured, according to police.
President Donald Trump is not at the White House, but at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
The man was in a large crowd when he fired the gun, the Washington Post reports, citing witnesses.
