Somebody on Twitter guessed that they heard the words “step out.” What might that mean?
This happened less than ten minutes ago at 2:54 p.m. PDT. Updates will be forthcoming as this story develops. It wouldn’t be another day in Washington without something weird and unexpected taking place. That much we do know.
UPDATE: 3:30 p.m. PDT:
There was a shooting outside the White House fence. Trump said that “the suspect” was the one who was shot. More details as they develop, in this or another post.
