The Daily Caller was there when the White House went into lockdown following a shooting incident on Monday.

Video Director Richie McGinniss sat down with Senior White House Correspondent Christian Datoc to discuss his experience at the White House as the incident happened.

The Secret Service says the man approached an officer outside the White House and informed him that he was armed. He began running toward the officer and appeared to reach into his clothing in a manner that suggested he was reaching for a gun. Law enforcement says he then crouched down into a shooting position (RELATED: President Trump Abruptly Rushed Out Of News Conference)

“Officers immediately rendered first aid to the suspect and D.C. Fire and EMS were called to the scene. Both the suspect and the officer were transported to local hospitals,” the Secret Service announced.
