The Secret Service said late Friday night that the man who jumped the fence did make it into the White House. The Secret Service identified the man as 42-year-old Omar Gonzalez of Texas. Gonzalez was taken to George Washington Medical Center for evaluation.
“The incident is under investigation and the U.S.S.S. will review the response, to make sure proper protocol was followed.” The First Family was not inside the White House at the time. A man made it very close to the front door of the White House Friday night, forcing a partial evacuation of the building.
According to witnesses, a man was seen running across the North Lawn of the White House. It happened just minutes after President Barack Obama and his daughters left for Camp David.
