Bullet Hit White House Window, Secret Service Confirms

WASHINGTON –  The  Secret Service has found a bullet that smashed a glass window at the White House  before being stopped by special anti-ballistic glass shielding the building’s  interior, WRC-TV reported late Tuesday night.

It was discovered Tuesday morning, said a Secret  Service official who added a second bullet was found outside the building.

The Secret Service has been investigating a shooting  that occurred near the White House on Friday, but sources told the station they  could not yet confirm that the newly discovered bullets are linked to that  incident.

An AK-47-style rifle was recovered from an abandoned  car Friday night after Secret Service officers heard shots being fired between  two vehicles on Constitution Avenue, about half a mile  from the White  House, shortly after 9:00pm.

U.S. Park Police spokesman Sgt. David Schlosser said  Sunday officers had obtained an arrest warrant for 21-year-old Oscar Ramiro  Ortega, on a felony charge of carrying a dangerous weapon, in connection with  the incident.

Ortega, who is believed to have ties to Idaho, is  thought to have remained in the Washington, D.C. area following Friday’s  drama.

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama  were in California at the time of the shooting then traveled to Hawaii for the  Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.

News of the bullets’ discovery broke shortly after  the president landed in Australia for a brief 27-hour visit.
