Secret Service Says Bullet Hit White House

(CBS/AP)  WASHINGTON - The Secret Service says a bullet hit an exterior window of the White House and was stopped by ballistic glass.  An

additional round of ammunition was also found on the exterior of the White House. The bullets were found Tuesday.  The discovery follows reports of gunfire near the White House on Friday. Witnesses heard shots and saw two speeding vehicles in the area. An AK-47 rifle was also recovered.

The Secret Service says it has not conclusively connected Friday's incident with the bullets found on the White House grounds. U.S. Park Police have an arrest warrant out for Oscar Ortega-Hernandez (shown below), who is believed to be connected to the earlier incident.

 

A statement from the Secret Service confirmed that the Secret Service, Park Police, FBI, ATF and Metropolitan Police Department were working together to find Ortega-Hernandez

A vehicle found on Friday between the Ellipse and the Washington Monument - an area just 700 or 800 yards from the White House, led authorities to issue the arrest warrant for the man, who is described as a "21-year old, Hispanic male, 5'11", 160 pounds, with a medium build, brown eyes and black hair."

"An AK-47 rifle was also recovered."

Hmm...how many people would leave their AK-47 at the scene after shooting at the WH? Did he just drop it out of the car window after shooting? Don't think so.

This whole story is an epic fail at perception management. So obvious.

Knowing a little something about recreational weapons, if you Fire an AK-47, YOUR GOING TO LEAVE MORE THAN ONE HOLE, SMELLS LIKE ANTI-GUN SET UP.

I have to agree with Rick G and Sully16 on this one, "perception management" But it's hard to tell which side is the culpit. The Dems with "looky - see how much they hate us - a crazy Obama hater shooting at the White House using a AK-47" or The Pubs - "Sombody shooting at the pres will be good for us right now....come'on copy cat crim, show them how to really do it." or "Why would anybody want to vote for a president that is hated so much"

The guy has issues, he is from Iowa and latino, in addition to a very long criminal record. He left the rifle in a broken down vehicle off of 395 S. of the capitol if I remeber correctly. I think that F' Obama is photoshopped.

I saw that idiot's pic on tv and that epithet wasn't on his hat and I didn't notice anything blurred out either.
Wonder if somebody at CBS/AP got carried away because hippie/democrat/Occupy Wall Street types like that guy shooting at the White House doesn't fit in with their agenda. Gotta make it look like he's on the Right.
