Washington, Sep 20 (IANS): A part of the White House was evacuated after a disturbance was detected on the North Lawn, media reported Saturday.
A man jumped the fence at the White House late Friday night and made it through the North Portico doors into the building before he was captured, an official said.
The suspect, Omar Gonzalez, 42, from Texas, was apprehended just inside the doors, CNN reported.
"The incident is under investigation and the US Secret Service will review the response to make sure proper protocol was followed," the official said.
It's unclear how Gonzalez made his way onto the grounds.
