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.

    Don't suppose anyone considered that this guy came down here to blend in? Don't suppose anyone considered his main purpose was to do wjhat he did, because as much as I don't like OWS, I can't believe the dud was camped out for days with an AK and nobody noticed.

    Well I doubt this was aimed at Obama, I don't know ANYONE that would waste a $0.38 Cent Bullet on him. I sure wish they would have shown the Actual HOLE. This is like the Bin Laden Diary, Which is supposed to name all that Al Qaeda is planning. Why not POST the Diary ON-LINE for all to use the App's to Translate. I am sure a Dead Mans Diary is NOT a National Security issue and wont hurt our Troops abroad either.

    With all the LIES that come from the White House, I want VISIBLE PROOF from NOW ON. PERIOD!

    Watch – The press will leave out the most important piece of evidence – that he's a registered democrat. You can bet the libs at cnn are hoping, praying (but not to Gob because they don't believe in Him) that this nut bag will be a tea party guy. Only liberals are those who have no regard for our country.

    @Shepherd:
    Registered Democrat?
    Well, that's not such a big leap if he actually *was* with the Occupy demonstration...true, there are more dems there than GOP...but everything else you have said is nothing more than a anti-dem rant, and patently ridiculous.

    @SFC THOM RETIRED AIRBORNE: your posts are inflammatory and off-base. I have my doubts that you are who your username indicates.

    Arrested in Pennsylvania? How is it that he allegedly fired bullets last Friday and the fednazis arrested him today–six days later? As usual anything the fednazis tell us is suspect.
