White House Shooting Suspect Arrested in Western PA

INDIANA, PA – The man thought to be responsible for a gunshot that hit the White House last week was arrested yesterday afternoon in Indiana, PA.

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez was arrested at a Hampton Inn hotel at around 12:35 p.m.

He was found after coordinated efforts by the Secret Service and PA State Police, which involved interviewing people who knew him and canvassing areas with photographs.

Officials say he was captured after someone recognized him from a photo and contacted authorities.

Ortega-Hernandez is scheduled for an appearance in a Pittsburgh federal court this afternoon at 2 p.m.
