Secret Service investigating after rock thrown at Trump motorcade

The Secret Service is reportedly investigating after a vehicle in President Trump's motorcade was hit by an object in south Florida, where the president is spending his weekend.

A US Secret Service spokesperson told members of the President's press pool that they are investigating an incident: “The Secret Service can confirm that an object appears to have been thrown at the motorcade this afternoon. We are investigating at this time and don’t have anything further.”

According to ABC News, law enforcement said the object was a rock. It didn't hit the presidential limo, but another vehicle in the motorcade.
