"21-year old, Hispanic male, 5'11", 160 pounds, with a medium build, brown eyes and black hair" sought after bullet hits the White House.NBC Washington reports that the Secret Service discovered a bullet had hit an exterior window of the White House and was stopped by ballistic glass.
ABC News has further information on the alleged shooter:
ABC News has learned authorities are increasingly concerned that a man sought in connection with a bizarre shooting incident on the Washington Mall last week may pose a threat to President Obama.
The Secret Service now suspects that a bullet fired in this incident may have hit the White House after a bullet round was found in a White House window, though the round had not yet been conclusively linked to the incident.
Police believe the suspect, Oscar Ramiro Ortega of Idaho Falls, is mentally ill. Local News 8 broke Ortega’s connection to Idaho Falls on Sunday night.
Ortega has an extensive record, ranging from domestic violence to drug charges. Sources say a police investigation has uncovered evidence suggesting Ortega has a fixation on the White House.
