BREAKING: Secret Service releases update on shooting near White House

The Secret Service has just released an update on the shooting that occurred near the White House that led to agents pulling Trump to a safer location:

“Update: the investigation into a USSS officer involved shooting is ongoing. A male subject and a USSS officer were both transported to a local hospital. At no time during this incident was the White House complex breached or were any protectees in danger.”



Not only was the suspect wounded, but an officer was also wounded in the altercation. We don’t know how, but there were reporters earlier of two gunshots. In fact Fox News reporter John Roberts said that one gunshot sounded louder than the other, suggesting it may have been from two different guns.

If the suspect shot the officer or wounded him somehow, you can even more easily understand why Trump was taken to the Oval Office. They probably wanted to ensure that there wasn’t more going on that could be a threat to the president.

In case you missed it, here’s the moment the Secret Service asked Trump to come with them:

 
As a side note, Democrats are already trying to figure out ways to spin this to hurt Trump:

No it’s not strange. The shooting happened near the White House and Trump was on TV live, so the whole nation knew exactly where he was at that specific time. If something more was at work here, Trump could have been at risk. It was the right call and only morons who hate the president are going to try and spin it otherwise.
