This past, Friday evening around 7:20pm EST a man, Omar Gonzalez, jumped the fence of the North Lawn and sprinted towards the White House, just making it inside before being apprehended.

Just minutes prior, President Obama had left on Marine 1 for Camp David. An official said that the man made it as far as he did because he was not carrying anything and did not look armed. After the arrest the man claimed to have chest pain and was taken to a hospital for evaluation. The White House was then evacuated for precautionary measures and armed guards surrounded the area.

As of now, it is unclear why Gonzalez climbed over the fence; he will be charged with unlawful entry into the White House complex.
