Pennsylvania state police on Wednesday arrested 21-year-old Oscar Ortega-Hernandez after he fired shots at the White House and was charged with trying to assassinate the President, the Inquirer said.

Secret Service special agent Edwin Donovan said investigation conducted after hearing the gunshots revealed “a round was stopped by ballistic glass behind the historic exterior glass. One additional round has been found on the exterior of the White House.”

Obama and his family were in California at the time of the incident and no one was injured.

The suspect was arrested at a hotel near Indiana, Pennsylvania, and was charged with assassination attempt in a US Federal court in Pittsburgh.

One of the friends of the suspect said Ortega-Hernandez saw Obama as the ‘devil’ that ‘needed to be taken care of’ and had pledged he would “not stop until it’s done.”

He could face life in prison if convicted.–official
