WASHINGTON – An internal investigation has been launched into the shooting of a 51-year-old suspect by a Secret Service officer near the White House complex late Monday, which prompted agents to briefly remove President Donald Trump from a press briefing.

Shortly before 6 p.m., according to an agency statement, the man allegedly approached a Secret Service uniformed officer standing post about a block from the White House grounds, telling the officer that he had a weapon.

About Shooting
Shooting is the act or process of discharging a projectile from a ranged weapon (such as a gun, sling, slingshot, crossbow, or bow). Even the acts of launching/discharging artillery, arrows, darts, grenades, rockets, and guided missiles can be considered acts of shooting. When using a firearm, the act of shooting is often called firing as it involves initiating a combustion process (deflagration).
Shooting can take place in a shooting range or in the field, in shooting sports, hunting or in combat. The person involved in the shooting activity is called a shooter. A skilled, accurate shooter is a marksman or sharpshooter, and a person’s level of shooting proficiency is referred to as their marksmanship.

About interrupted
In digital computers, an interrupt is a response by the processor to an event that needs attention from the software. An interrupt condition alerts the processor and serves as a request for the processor to interrupt the currently executing code when permitted, so that the event can be processed in a timely manner. If the request is accepted, the processor responds by suspending its current activities, saving its state, and executing a function called an interrupt handler (or an interrupt service routine, ISR) to deal with the event. This interruption is temporary, and, unless the interrupt indicates a fatal error, the processor resumes normal activities after the interrupt handler finishes.Interrupts are commonly used by hardware devices to indicate electronic or physical state changes that require attention. Interrupts are also commonly used to implement computer multitasking, especially in real-time computing. Systems that use interrupts in these ways are said to be interrupt-driven.

“The suspect then turned around, ran aggressively towards the officer, and in a drawing motion, withdrew an object from his clothing,” the agency said. “He then crouched into a shooter’s stance as if about to fire a weapon. The Secret Service officer discharged his weapon, striking the individual in the torso. “

No firearm was found on the suspect, said a law enforcement official who is not authorized to comment publicly.

Shooting near White House that interrupted Trump briefing is under …

US President Donald Trump is being removed from the Brady Briefing Room of the White House in Washington, DC, on August 10, 2020.

Both the suspect and the officer were transported to local hospitals. Their conditions were not immediately known Tuesday.

Although the White House complex was not breached and no government officials were threatened, the Secret Service interrupted Trump’s press briefing, as it was being broadcast on cable television, and escorted the president to an area near the Oval Office as a precaution.

Briefing interrupted:Trump abruptly taken out of briefing room as White House goes into lockdown

The president was in the middle of his opening statement when an agent came to his side and escorted him off the podium. Trump returned to the room after a few moments and reported that there had been a shooting outside the White House. 

“It was law enforcement shot someone, it seems to be the suspect. And the suspect is now on the way to the hospital,” Trump said.

The Secret Service Office of Professional Responsibility is conducting an internal review of the officer’s actions and the D.C Metropolitan Police Department also has been asked to investigate.

“You were surprised, I was surprised also,” Trump said.

At the time, Trump said he wasn’t aware of the reason for the shooting.

“It might not have had anything to do with me,” Trump said. “It might have been something else.”

Asked if he was rattled by the experience, Trump responded: “Do I seem rattled?”

Lockdowns at the White House are relatively common and can happen for nearby shooters, breaches of the White House perimeter and even bags abandoned nearby. But it is rare for lockdowns to occur when the president is on stage and extremely rare for the president to be removed by Secret Service in the middle of remarks.  

The last high-profile lockdown took place in May because of protesters outside the White House, demonstrating over the death of George Floyd.

Reporters inside the White House indicated the building was on lockdown shortly after the shooting. Trump professed little worry about his own safety. 

“The world has always been a dangerous place,” Trump said. “That’s not something that’s unique.”

The president returned to the briefing room minutes later and, after fielding several questions about the shooting, returned to his prepared remarks. 

“So I was telling you that the Dow Jones and the SP 500 are now 50% above the March level,” he said. 

“Spent twelve years in the Secret Service and I’ve never seen that before,” tweeted Dan Bongino, a Republican commentator and former Secret Service agent.
