An official has confirmed that a man who once jumped a fence at the White House was shot and killed Tuesday at a Pennsylvania courthouse after stabbing a sheriff’s deputy with a knife. According to a statement from the office of Chester County District Attorney Thomas Hogan, 34 year old Curtis Smith attacked the deputy at the entrance to the Chester County Justice Center in West Chester.

A second deputy drew a weapon and shot Smith.  Hogan said “In Chester County, we have trained intensively to deal with the threat of an attacker in the Justice Center or any other public building. Today, that training paid off.”

Hogan also said in his statement that Smith is the same man who jumped the outer stone wall near the white house in March. However it was not clear why he was at the courthouse.

The sheriff’s deputy suffered wounds to his hand and arm but once he was transported to a hospital it was made clear that he is in stable condition.

Smith was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
