5:30 p.m.

A hospital spokeswoman says the gunman shot by a U.S. Secret Service officer outside the White House remains in critical condition.

George Washington University Hospital spokeswoman Susan Griffiths provided the update Saturday evening about the man investigators have identified as Jesse Oliveri of Ashland, Pennsylvania.

Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback declined to comment Saturday on the case, citing the continuing investigation.

Another Secret Service spokesman, David Iacovetti, said Friday that one of the agency’s officers fired one shot at the man Friday afternoon after he approached a checkpoint and refused repeated commands to drop his weapon.

The Secret Service said the gunman never made it inside the White House complex, and no one else was injured
