Police have named 21-year-old Oscar Ortega Hernandez of Idaho who shot at a White House window with an AK-47 assault rifle on Friday, and according to published reports, the U.S. Secret Service said Pennsylvania authorities arrested Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez this afternoon at a Pennsylvania hotel. Ortega-Hernandez was taken into custody without incident.
The Secret Service found one bullet lodged in the protective ballistic glass of a historic exterior window. Another spent round was found on the grounds of the White House.
President Barack Obama was not in his official residence at the time of the shooting. He landed in Australia yesterday amid heightened security after documents were found revealing his possible locations while in Australia. Sounds like the President’s Secret Service detail is slipping.
