Man With Idaho ties Arrested In White House Shooting Investigation

Fox News reports this afternoon that Oscar Ortega-Hernandez was found by a Pennsylvania state trooper at a hotel near Indiana, Pa., shortly after noon on Wednesday.  He is currently being held by the State Police.

The arrest comes as officials continue to investigate the incident, after discovering bullets at or near the White House.

According to a Secret Service statement earlier Wednesday, law enforcement found one bullet that smashed a window at the White House before being stopped by a second layer of “ballistic glass.” Another round was found outside the White House. The Secret Service said the damage “has not been conclusively connected” to the shooting.

Law enforcement for days had been searching for the suspect, 21-year-old Ortega-Hernandez. The suspect has a record of arrests in Idaho, Utah and Texas, according to MyFoxDC, and reportedly is believed to be mentally ill.

Idaho Falls Police Department spokeswoman Joelyn Hansen says the suspect’s family reported him missing Oct. 31.
