(WASHINGTON DC) A man jumped over a White House fence and made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended, Friday.  The man, identified at 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez from Copperas Cove hopped the north fence and ran across the lawn into the White House. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House as Secret Service agents drew their guns to rush staffers and journalists out a side door.  President Barack Obama and his daughters along with a friend had just left the White House minutes before the security breach. First Lady Michelle Obama was not home at the time either. Gonzales was charged with unlawful entry into the White House complex and was taken to a nearby hospital after complaining of chest pain.  Secret Service Spokesman Ed Donovan said Gonzalez appeared to be unarmed but noted that he ignored commands from officers to stop. A search of Gonzalez turned up no weapons.
