The individual was immediately taken into custody and protective sweeps of the area were conducted shortly after. Access to the White House has resumed, however.

The president's public schedule for Wednesday shows he is at the White House. He is expected to present the commander-in-chief trophy to the U.S. Naval Academy's football team Wednesday afternoon in the mansion's East Room.

Wednesday's episode is the second day in a row the executive residence has been placed under a lockdown.

On Tuesday afternoon, another incident at the White House compound triggered a security lock down.

At about 3:55 p.m. Tuesday, a man jumped the west fence of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building because he was "fleeing from the scene of a robbery" that occurred near the area, according to a USSS statement.

The individual was taken into custody "without incident."
