According to the Associated Press, the shooting took place near 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, just blocks from the White House, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation who were not authorised to speak publicly about it.

It was a shooting outside of the White House, “POTUS said after resuming the press briefing.

“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.”

He said the shooting was “near the edge of the White House grounds” and he was taken to the Oval Office while “law enforcement” dealt with the situation.

Reporters asked Mr. Trump if he was shaken by the incident.

“I don’t know. Do I seem rattled?” Mr. Trump said.
