The Secret Service has confirmed that a bullet destroyed a White House window before being stopped by bullet-proof glass. They have also confirmed that a second bullet was found nearby on the lawn. Both bullets were discovered Tuesday morning.
It is unclear whether or not these bullets are related to the gunshots that were heard not far from the building on Friday night. Shortly after the shots were heard an AK-47 was found abandoned in the area. The Secret Service is looking into any possible connections between that incident and the discovered bullets.
US Park Police are currently on the lookout for Oscar Ortega Hernandez, as he is believed to have been involved with Friday’s gunshots. We’ll have more information as the story develops.
