The police are looking for a man who is suspected of firing shots at the White House on Friday.
Oscar Ortega-Hernandez, a 21-year-old with prior arrests in three different states for drugs and beating up a girlfriend, is believed to have fired shots near the White House on Friday.
Cops located the suspect’s car a short time later and found evidence inside linking him to the shooting, the Secret Service said. The Secret Service did not say what kind of evidence.
President Obama was en route to Hawaii for a summit at the time and was never in any danger.
Investigators have found two shell casings near the White House and a bullet that pierced an exterior window but was “stopped by ballistic glass behind the historic exterior glass,” the Secret Service reported.
Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the Secret Service, declined to divulge the caliber of the bullets or which White House window was hit.
It’s time for people to find some new hobbies…..
I hope the Secret Service gets this man in custody soon!
Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said Pennsylvania police, acting on information provided by the service, arrested Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Herndandez at a hotel near Indiana, Pa., at around 12:35 p.m. ET.
