WASHINGTON —  A man jumped over the White House fence on Wednesday night, but this time, the man barely made it onto the lawn before being taken down by a K-9 and quickly detained by Secret Service agents.

“Dog got him,” a Secret Service spokesman said.

It was the first fence jumper since Omar Gonzalez, who made it into the White House before being detained.

Security at the White House was already on heightened alert following Wednesday’s shooting in the Canadian capital city.
