Suspect in custody following White House lockdown

WASHINGTON — The Secret Service says a suspect is in custody following an incident that caused a lockdown at the White House on Tuesday.

The Secret Service reported Tuesday afternoon it was responding to an individual who jumped the bike rack along the north fence line of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Security had been tight for Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s visit earlier in the day, as protesters gathered in front of the White House. Erdogan left before the lockdown.
