The White House was evacuated Friday evening after a fence jumper managed to make his way to the building. Early reports are unclear as to exactly how he managed to get so close to the building before being caught.

The President and his family were in no danger from the incident. They had departed earlier on Marine One, the President's helicopter, for the Presidential retreat at Camp David. With ISIS making direct threats against the White House, the intrusion understandably caused serious concern for the Secret Service.  This is the first time an intruder has actually made it into the building, prompting a thorough of security by the Secret Service.
