Washington, D.C. — (WSAV)

Authorities are investigating what led a man to shoot himself right outside of the White House.

It happened outside the north fence of the building.  Officials say a man pulled out a gun and fired several rounds.

None of them appeared to be directed at the White House.  The gunman then shot himself.  He died hours later.

President Trump and First Lady Melania were in Florida at the time of the incident.
