Donald Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa Trump, was hospitalized Monday after receiving a letter containing white powder determined to be non-hazardous, New York City police told Fox News.

President Trump‘s daughter-in-law opened the letter addressed to Donald Trump Jr. about 10 a.m. at the couple's Manhattan apartment. It's unclear what the "white powder" was.

Vanessa Trump was taken to the hospital as a precaution, police said. Two other people were reportedly also taken to the hospital, according to ABC7NY. The couple has five children, though it was not clear if any were home at the time of the incident.

Police and Secret Service are investigating the incident.

Trump Jr. is the eldest son of the president. He married Vanessa in 2005.

Trump Jr. ditched his Secret Service detail for a period of time in September, reportedly because he wanted more privacy. But his detail was apparently reactivated about a week later.
