Secret Service officials, investigating an incident of gunshots at the White House, say they have located two bullets and have a suspect in the case.

Last Friday, a round believed to be fired from an AK-47 struck a window at the White House, but authorities say it was stopped by bullet-proof glass.

Police say that a suspect, 21-year-old Oscar Ramiro Ortega, has been identified by a car and the rifle that he abandoned near the Presidential home. ABC News  reported that Ortega has a criminal record that includes domestic violence and drug charges. Authorities believe that Ortega may have been associated with the Occupy DC protest camp, and have since searched the area several times.

The United States Park Police have issued a warrant for Ortega’s arrest and have published a wanted person report on their website that displays photos of the suspect, including one that shows a tattoo on his neck that reads “Israel.” Law enforcement entities throughout the country are searching for the suspect, and there is some speculation that he may intend to try to harm the President.
