An individual who tried to jump over a barricade near the White House was detained by Secret Service agents on Wednesday.

Initial reports from media members inside of the White House claimed that the building was placed on lockdown for an unspecified reason.

Reporters were told to stay inside of the White House while the situation unfolded. It later turned out to be because of the Secret Service responding to the person who attempted to get over the bike rack.

The incident took place at around 4:28 p.m. EDT neat 17th and East.

The incident took place just hours after a man was apprehended by authorities at Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. with an AR-15 assault rifle and ammunition.
