August 23, 2018

The White House Secret Service has recently made announcements concerning the safety of Washington D.C. According to their Twitter page, the Secret Service is searching for multiple suspects that are believed to have made life-threatening statements that concern the public's safety.

Earlier this month, the White House was sent into lockdown after a suspicious vehicle arrived near the White House North Lawn. Officials announced that officers were "alerted to a vehicle at a checkpoint" nearby.

At that time, the North Fence along Pennsylvania Avenue and Lafayette Park were closed. The U.S. Secret Service posted on Twitter saying the following:

"Secret Service Officers and K9 units were alerted to a vehicle at a checkpoint near the @WhiteHouse. The North Fence along Pennsylvania Avenue and Lafayette Park are closed at this time. @DCPoliceDept EOD personnel are responding to the scene."

As the morning went by, local news "Fox56" tweeted: "UPDATE: The vehicle near the White House has been cleared. The North Fence line and Lafayette Park will open shortly. Lockdown is over."
