Trump evacuated from press conference after man shot outside White House

US Secret Service shot and wounded a man outside the White House yesterday.

The man was apparently armed, and President Trump was promptly moved out of the press conference by agents shortly after.

The 51-year-old male ran at a Secret Service agent aggressively and claimed to have a weapon.

As the man then drew an object out of his clothes, a Secret Service agent shot him in the torso.

The suspect and the agent were then rushed to hospital.
