Here’s what we have so far…
President Trump was quickly pulled away from the podium at a recent press briefing by secret service after gunshots rang out from just outside the White House fence.
Here are the moments in real time when secret service sprang into action and secured the POTUS:

President Trump came back to finish the briefing.
Currently there is no known motive of the shooter and more information will come out soon.
