WASHINGTON (WTNH) — The White House was put into lockdown Tuesday after an incident at a street entrance to the complex, according to CNN.
An update from CNN’s original post on the breaking news story:
The move came after a vehicle followed a motorcade into a secure area at 4:40 p.m., a U.S. Secret Service spokesperson said.
The driver was stopped by uniformed officers at the outer perimeter of a checkpoint at 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue and taken into custody, according to the spokesperson.
According to CNN, “Due to tight security at the home of the President, even minor breaches can cause a lockdown to occur.”
