White House, Capital Hill evacuated amid security threats

The White House briefing room was evacuated Tuesday during the middle of the daily press briefing.

A Secret Service agent entered the briefing room and interrupted press secretary Josh Earnest, instructing everyone to exit the White House.

A Secret Service dog was brought in to sniff around the room.

Officials eventually allowed everyone back inside.

Reporters were told they were evacuated because a bomb threat to the briefing room was called in shortly before 2 p.m.
