UPDATE: One man reported dead after shooting himself in the head near White House fence

Authorities in the nation’s capital have confirmed the man they believe shot himself in the head Saturday just outside of the White House’s north fence has died from his injuries.

According to CBS News, Washington D.C. police and the U.S. Secret Service have confirmed the individual has died, though his name had not been released as of the latest updates available.

In the chaotic aftermath of the shooting, the Secret Service shared updates via its Twitter feed.

“The subject is deceased,” the agency wrote in a subsequent statement on the incident.

CrimeOnline previously reported that President Donald Trump was not at the White House at the time of the shooting.

He was at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida with first lady Melania Trump, but had been briefed on the situation, according to deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley.

Witness footage of the disturbance showed a crowd of bystanders running away from the scene.

According to CBS News security analyst Ron Hosko, there is no evidence at this point that the incident had political ties, but investigators will certainly explore that possibility as they look into the case.

He went on to note that individuals can “get pretty darn close to the White House with a weapon,” a fact that has played out in various ways.

As CrimeOnline reported last month, the White House was placed on lockdown for a period of time during the afternoon of Feb. 23 after a woman crashed a minivan into a barrier near the executive mansion.
