According to CNN, one person is in custody after a car drove up to a White House checkpoint late Saturday and the driver claimed to have a bomb in the vehicle.
There wasn’t any immediate confirmation that a device was in the car, but the vehicle was being checked, CNN reported citing law enforcement sources.
CNN said there didn’t appear to be an imminent threat. Streets around the White House were closed immediately following the incident.
The report followed another incident earlier Saturday when a man was detained after jumping a pedestrian barrier near the White House.
