The Secret Service said Pennsylvania authorities arrested Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, 21, Wednesday afternoon at a hotel near Indiana, Pa.
Last Friday evening a gunman opened fire a few blocks away from the White House. Yesterday, the Secret Service says a bullet hit an exterior window on the residential level of the White House where Obama lives with his family. Thankfully, the bullet was stopped by ballistic glass.
Police issued a warrant for Ortega, as the man involved in a shoot out near the White House Friday night.
Witnesses heard shots and saw two speeding vehicles in the area, while an AK-47 rifle was also recovered.
Ortega was described as a white Hispanic man standing 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds, with medium build, brown eyes, black hair and on the left side of his neck he has a tattoo reading "Israel."
Police believe that Ortega is mentally ill and has an extensive record, ranging from domestic violence to drug charges. He was apprehended at a Pennsylvania hotel.
We're relieved to see the man who put the lives of our leader and his family in danger will be behind bars!
