President Donald Trump was away in Florida.

The Secret Service tweeted early Saturday afternoon that  "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."

"We are aware of the incident," deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told CNN.com. "The President has been briefed. I refer you to the Secret Service for any more information."
 
CNN reported that the Secret Service tweeted an update soon after: "No other reported injuries related to the incident at @WhiteHouse."
 
CNN also reported that Secret Service spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan said the incident occurred on the north fence line, the victim suffered a single gunshot wound and Secret Service personnel did not fire any shots. She would not comment on the status of the victim.
