The White House is on lockdown due to an unattended package on the north fence line.
Very little information is available at this time, as the package has not been identified or cleared. The Secret Service says that it is investigating and will reopen the White House as soon as it has been deemed safe to do so.
Lafayette Park, across the street, has been cleared.
At this time, there is not much else to report, so here’s a photo of the scene via NBC’s Shomari Stone.
We will update as more information becomes available.
