WEST CHESTER, PA -- The White House fence jumper has fallen, and he's not getting back up.

Curtis Smith, the Pennsylvania man who scaled the White House fences back in March, was killed in a courthouse on Tuesday.

It happened after Smith reportedly entered the lobby of the Chester County Justice Center and slashed a deputy with a knife. Witnesses say another deputy shot Smith down, and it was all over within seconds.

“Unfortunately because of incidents like this across the nation, we've learned how to deal with an attack at a courthouse …the lockdown went perfectly,” said Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan.

The injured deputy is in stable condition.
