Idahoan Jailed In White House Attack

Federal law enforcement authorities on Tuesday arrested a 21-year-old Idaho man suspected of shooting with a semiautomatic rifle at the White House on Friday night, as the Secret Service reported finding that at least one bullet had indeed struck the presidential residence. The Secret Service said that Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez was arrested at a hotel near Indiana, Pa., at approximately 12:35 p.m. by the Pennsylvania State Police, acting on information from the Secret Service’s agents in Pittsburgh. “Ortega-Hernandez is currently in the custody of the Pennsylvania State Police,” the statement said/Charlie Savage, Brian Knowlton & Mark Landler, New York Times.
