Bullets Found Around the White House After Someone Shot at the Building

Your Black World reports

The Secret Service says that a bullet hit an outside window of the White House.  The bullet was stopped by ballistic glass and no one was harmed.  Another round was found on the outside of the house on Tuesday. 

The bullets were found after gunfire was reported on Friday.  Several witnesses heard the shots and saw two cars quickly fleeing the scene.  They also found an AK-47 assault rifle.  

A warrant has been put out for Oscar Ortega-Hernandez, a 21-year old Hispanic man.  He is believed to have been connected with the shooting.   Perhaps he's too young to understand that shooting at the president might get you into a little bit of trouble. 

President Barack Obama has been the subject of a large number of death threats, more than any president in American history.  The Secret Service had to increase its budget to provide enough security to protect the president and his family.  He and his wife travel in limousines that are built like tanks, where even the carpets in the limo are bomb-proof.  This shooting doesn't appear to be an immediate threat.
