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.

    Funny, I saw a picture of this guy and he doesn't look like a blood thirsty Christan Tea Party member, that evil woman Sarah Palin or even one of the 53%...A Tax Payer. He looks more like what Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Kerry, Moore, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC...etc...etc...support, a typical left wing Marxist Occupy protester. 99% my A$$.

    I'd be willing to bet that this guy has an autographed copy of Sarah Palin's famous " crosshairs" poster hanging in his bedroom.

    Like he said... wake up people!
    This is how they escalate gun control and screw with your rights to bare arms.

    The guy in question most likely didn't pull the trigger and is a CIA sponsered Jon Doe. Another underwear bomber.
    Even if he did actually pull the trigger it's most likely a sharpshooter placed the rounds in the window/wall.
    Or there were no bullet hits (until we see photos – but that would still not prove live rounds actually hit said target).

    I know most of you yanks are not as stupid as some of us other English speakers.
    Please do us all a favour.

    Vote Ron Paul in 2012!

    Anyone who calls this line of thought a conspiracy theory is a paid conspirator.

      I love seeing all the "most likely..." theories appear on these blogs.
      Ron Paul, the Dr. who doesn't believe in evolution....should never have gotten a dr. license, but he would still practice anyway.

      Hispanics can't be right wing extremists? Shame on you for stereotyping. Ever hear of Juan Peron? Pinochet?
