The White House was on lockdown Friday after police reported a shooting near the seat of US presidential power, amid reports that the assailant opened fire into the complex.

CNN said the suspect was down and in custody. President Barack Obama was not on the premises — the White House said earlier he had gone to play golf at Andrews Air Force Base.
