Man arrested in probe of White House bullets

Authorities have arrested a man who allegedly was involved in a shooting incident that may be responsible for two bullets found this week at the White House, the U.S. Secret Service said.

Police arrested Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez near Indiana, Pennsylvania, the U.S. Secret Service said. Authorities say they believe he was involved in a shooting that happened near the White House in Washington, D.C., on Friday night.

Two bullets were found Tuesday, including one that hit an exterior White House window and was stopped by bulletproof glass, and another found on the White House exterior.

Ortega-Hernandez is in the custody of the Pennsylvania State Police.

      I am more afraid of those radical so called conservatives with their limited vocabulary and intellect. Their dangerous inciteful rhetoric is far more scarier than any person from another country. What am I saying? Unless the conservatives are native american, they are illegal aliens as well. Oh I forgot, it's not illegal if you kill them before you take from them. See the pattern!

    If this was a white guy this would be plastered on all of the headlines, "White guy tries to kill obama".

      You know, come to think of it, I don't believe I have ever seen a headline like that, pointing out that the perpetrator is white.

      Adrian,

      Do not let your own prejudice come true. Simply because he has a Spanish surname you should not assume he needs to learn English.

      In the US, we dont speak the Kings english, that I learned 60yrs. ago. We have our slang, German, Spanish, Mexican dialects, indian dialects, Asian dialects, all intertwined, go back to the round table, see how that worked out for them , over the last 10 centuries.

    Wonder what he was doing in DC? Other stories say that the FBI were looking thru the #Occupy shanty for the shooter. Put 2 and 2 together, and wonder how long Obambi is going to continue supporting these rogues.

      Occupy involves working people. Why would they try to kill the president? He is trying to help them. Leave the spin to FAUX News.
