Not much at this time, a shooting at West Executive Avenue, steps away from the White House. This source seems to have the more information than the other 2: bnonews.com...




The complex is on lockdown. President Barack Obama is not currently at the residence, having departed for an afternoon golf excursion at Joint Base Andrews with three aides.

He's on a golf excursion but I'm sure they sent some more Secret Service to guard him just in case

Isn't crime quite a problem in DC?

Probably no big deal.

Secret Service shot a man in the stomach after he pulled a gun outside the White House.

Hmmmm..

Golf at the time of a shooting this close to the WH ?

Could be another set-up for gun control.

What a bunch of useless information. I highly doubt anyone thought he might be at work in the WH on a Friday afternoon.

Oh obviously!

Since a few school mass shootings didn't work... so maybe they thought they'd have better luck randomly firing off a few rounds in DC.

What a completely rational thought process.

Bing-bong, you nailed it!

Sandy Hook and Aurora didn't get it done, but this...this will freaking do it.

God your shtick gets old.

Isolated incident I would bet ~ probably another loony like the guy who was shooting at the Capitol building a few months back.

this didn't do the trick either ....

2011 White House shooting


The 2011 White House shooting occurred on November 11, 2011, when Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, an unemployed 21-year-old man who was obsessed with U.S. President Barack Obama, fired a semi-automatic rifle at the White House, the official residence of the U.S. Presidency in Washington, D.C. At least seven bullets hit the second floor. Neither the president nor First Lady Michelle Obama were home at the time, although their younger daughter, Sasha, and the first lady's mother, Marian Shields Robinson, were. No one was injured. It took four days for the Secret Service to realize that bullets had struck the White House. Michelle Obama learned of the shooting from an usher, then summoned Mark J. Sullivan, director of the Secret Service, to find out why the first family had not been informed.


anybody see the "mis-info" in the opening wiki paragraph?

... it's the "play-dumb" tactic.

Updates are saying it was at a checkpoint, he pulled the piece, secret service told him to drop it, he didn't, they shot him.

Subject is in critical condition at a hospital with GSW to abdomen.

This perp certainly sounds like a loose cannon. Gun shot wound to the abdomen, that's gotta hurt - next time maybe he will listen.

Shooting near white house? No big thing.

When I lived in DC, one of the worst crime ridden ghettoes in the country, the prostitutes and drug dealers weren’t more than a few blocks from the white house doing good business
