A man shot himself in the head in front of the White House at just before noon Saturday, a Secret Service spokesperson has told CNN.
“Secret Service personnel are responding to reports of a person who allegedly suffered a self-inflicted gun shot wound along the north fence line of @WhiteHouse,” the Secret Service tweeted as the incident unfolded.
Secret Service spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan said the man approached the fence line, removed a concealed handgun and fired several rounds, none of which appear to have been aimed at the White House.
Milhoan noted that the man has since died; no one else was injured in the incident, adding that the victim suffered a single gunshot wound, and Secret Service personnel did not fire any shots.
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump were at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, at the time and are scheduled to return to Washington on Saturday afternoon for the annual Gridiron Club Dinner.
“We are aware of the incident,” deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said. “The President has been briefed. I refer you to the Secret Service for any more information.”
Milhoan said the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Department is taking the lead in the investigation.
She added that law enforcement authorities have identified the victim but are withholding the man’s name pending notification of his family.
The Secret Service also tweeted that pedestrian and vehicular traffic around the White House has been affected by the incident.

The PM said the deal was “at risk” if MPs’ concerns could not be addressed.
European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said there could be clarifications but no renegotiation.
He urged the UK to set out more clearly what it wants, adding that the commission will publish information on 19 December on its preparations for a no-deal Brexit.
“Our UK friends need to say what they want, instead of asking us to say what we want, and so we would like within a few weeks our UK friends to set out their expectations for us, because this debate is sometimes nebulous and imprecise and I would like clarifications,” he said.

Daily Mail reported that experts have warned against drinking dog or human urine popularly known as the Urine therapy.
Joy McCarthy, a certified nutritionist told Allure that, “Urine is mostly made up of water, lots of urea, creatinine, various electrolytes, uric acid, trace proteins, and low levels of antibodies and enzymes.”
Urine can have a terrible impact on the health because of the toxins and acids they contain, experts have warned.
McCarthy said drinking urine from dogs poses more dangers to the human health because they contain Herbicides.
“Herbicides have been detected in dog’s urine, likely from herbicide-treated lawns, antibiotics, and hormones, so I really don’t know that it’s the safest choice,” she said.
She says that drinking urine from an animal could be an unsafe route for the body because what the liquid might contain.
It was gathered that drinking one’s urine was a therapy in ancient China, Greece, Egypt and Rome.
Nutritionist also corrected the popular misconception that drinking urine could come in hardy in survival situations to prevent dehydration.

Dr Amy Shah have also dismissed the woman’s claim that drinking urine cures cancer.
During an interview with Mind Body Green, Shah said small amount of urine therapy could be beneficial for the body but she would not recommend it as a cure for any disease.
She said, “While most of urine is water, waste, and urea, I still cannot recommend this as a viable alternative to the many diseases it is touted to cure.
“We have more waste in our systems today than we did thousands of years ago.”
She said consuming body waste does the body more harm than good.

BREAKING!!! Israeli Snipers Kill 37 Palestinians, Wound 1,300 Over US Embassy Opening
US moving embassy from Tel Aviv today after Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December
Israeli snipers have killed dozens of protesters near the Gaza border with more than a thousand more injured
Mass protests taking place with Palestinian government accusing Israel of committing a ‘terrible massacre’

Russia says embassy move risks increasing Middle East tension as Turkey says US is now ‘part of the problem’

Israeli snipers have killed 37 Palestinians and wounded hundreds more as 35,000 protesters rallied against the US Embassy opening in Jerusalem overseen by Donald Trump’s Middle East envoy Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka.
A 14-year-old was among 37 killed along the Gaza border on what is already the deadliest single day in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since a 2014 war between the Jewish state and Gaza’s Islamist rulers Hamas.
At least 1,300 more have been injured with about 450 of them by live bullets, according to Gaza officials as the Palestinian government accused Israel of committing a ‘terrible massacre’ and Amnesty International called the bloodshed an ‘abhorrent violation’ of human rights.
This afternoon a White House delegation – including Ivanka Trump and her husband – gathered for an inauguration ceremony for the opening of the new embassy. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is also in the audience.
The US President tossed aside decades of precedent when he recognised the city as Israel’s capital in December – a decision that sparked global outcry, Palestinian anger and exuberant praise from Israelis.
Russia said today it feared the embassy opening would increase tension in the Middle East while Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan warned the US it had forfeited its role as a mediator in the region and was now ‘part of the problem rather than the solution’.
As deadly clashes broke out this morning, Trump, in a tweet, hailed the opening as ‘a great day for Israel’. Trump made no reference to the violence in an early morning tweet, instead inviting Twitter followers to watch live coverage of the embassy opening.
