A small drone was found on the White House grounds overnight, two law enforcement sources confirmed to ABC News, but White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the situation “does not pose any sort of ongoing threat.”

The Secret Service is investigating the device, Earnest said.

President and Mrs. Obama are currently in India, with a stop planned in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. It was unclear if the president’s daughters were at home at the time of the incident.

Police, fire and other emergency vehicles swarmed around the White House in the pre-dawn hours, with several clustered near the southeast entrance to the mansion. The White House was dark and the entire perimeter was on lockdown until around 5 a.m., when pass holders who work in the complex were allowed inside.
