Donald Trump has been escorted out of a press briefing by a Secret Service agent after a shooting outside the White House.
The US president was just minutes into a statement to the media when he was rushed out of the room.
He later returned and announced there had been a shooting outside the White House grounds and that the suspect had been shot by officers.
“It seems to be very well under control… But there was an actual shooting, and somebody has been taken to the hospital. I don’t know the condition of the person.”
