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.

    It is sad that some Americans celebrate a shooting on the People's House. If you are so twisted, either on the left or right, that you can't appreciate the fact that this is the United States, and that we're all in this together, you're sick.

    It's my understanding of secret service protocol that a shooter should not have been able to get that close. Either the secret service is falling down on the job or they are secretly in on something. They should clean house over there.

  10. s kel - typical liberal

    @s kel – lmfao how ironic to see you accuse others of being stupid after reading your posts littered with grammatical and spelling errors. But that is what one would expect from a morally corrupt liberal – you all resort to name calling when your pathetic arguments fail. BTW it IS being reported else-ware (and NOT on Fox News) that this man was indeed associated with the Occupy movement and not surprisingly is a drug addict. What better place for a drug addict to hang out than an OWS camp? Liberalism is killing a once great nation.

    When Ms. Cindy Sheehan's son was killed in Iraq, she camped out at Crawford Ranch to probe her son's death when no WMD's were discovered in Iraq. Well, if Americans are dissatisfied with the state of our economy, they have two choices...They could occupy the Washington Mall in protest of the rightwing policies that lead to our economic downfall or they can go occupy Crawford Ranch.

      Joe : right wing policies created our economic downfall ? Democrats have been mostly in charge of congress since 2006, and that's about when things were getting really bad or worse, bush is guilty of signing the bill, but the dems wrote them and approved them ! and liberal policies started destroying this country with Woodrow Wilson and FDR, of course republicans had a part in this economic disaster, but democrats have had a much bigger part, for the reasons I have already stated, and because obama added more debt faster than any president in history, at the worst time in recent times, you do not get out of a recession by adding more debt, especially when it is/was this out of control, but for some reason, people like you do not want to know the truth about it

      Marxist`s unite ! So typical, you can`t come up with reasonable argument, so just call names. About as infantile behavior as can be. What in your opinion, is a reasonable profit ? Or is that just a cute buzz word you were taught ? Do you know what it takes to even operate a buis. ? It`s a 24-7 job. I have a small buis.. If you came in my establishment, spewing this garbage, I would physically throw you out. How`s that for economic boycotting ?

      More Marxist comments and name calling. ALL the news agencies are ultimately owned by one family. If you took the time, and get past the dummy corp.,check out the people in charge and you will learn that all, that is ALL the news organizations are owned and controled by one family. Rothschild`s. You are playing into their hands and furthering their cause. The majority ,right,left,what ever (ist) or (ism) is attached to the movement, they have ALL been created by one family. Check out the Rothschild time line. It`s available on line. Even CNN ,Reuters, NBC,CBS,FOX, you name it. We have a common enemy. But it isn`t who you protest against. Check it please.I do wish every one (right,left and inbetween ) would.
