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 of the White House, but was stopped by ballistic glass.
Witnesses heard shots and saw two speeding vehicles in the area, while 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.
Police have identified Oscar Ramiro Ortega, 21, as the man involved in a shoot out near the White House Friday night.
Ortega is 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.”
An arrest warrant was issued on Ortega by U.S. Park Police.
Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact local law enforcement or US Park Police at (202) 610-7500.
