Hunt for gunman after AK47 bullet hits White House window
A manhunt is underway in the U.S. for a disturbed gunman who is suspected of shooting at the White House with an AK-47 assault rifle and smashing a window.
Police said Oscar Ramiro Ortega - who is thought to have a fixation on the building - opened fire across a lawn from half a mile away then ran off.
When the White House was checked a round was found to have gone through a window and was only stopped from going inside by the bulletproof glass behind it.
A second round was found embedded in the exterior of the building.
Barack Obama was not in the White House at the time and was in California en route to the APEC summit in Hawaii.
The Secret Service has not yet been able to definitely link the two incidents but are now hunting Ortega, 21.
They said that he is mentally disturbed and had been in Washington for weeks before opening fire, coming back and forth to Washington Mall.
Agents say he is unpredictable and are extremely worried what he might do next.
U.S. Park Police said that before the shooting Ortega had been detained at an abandoned house nearby and had been spending time with the Occupy D.C. protesters.
He has a number of tattoos on his chest and back including hands clasped in prayer and rosary beads and the word ‘Israel’ on the left side of his neck.
Originally from Idaho, he has extensive record criminal record ranging from domestic violence, drug charges, assaulting a police officer and The Secret Service, Park Police, FBI, and Washington police are all continuing the search for the suspect, who they believe is still in the area.
