Posted on 11/16/2011 2:08:30 AM PST by markomalley
ABC News has learned authorities are increasingly concerned that a man sought in connection with a bizarre shooting incident on the Washington Mall last week may pose a threat to President Obama.
The Secret Service now suspects that a bullet fired in this incident may have hit the White House after a bullet round was found in a White House window, though the round had not yet been conclusively linked to the incident.
Police believe the suspect, Oscar Ramiro Ortega of Idaho Falls, is mentally ill. Local News 8 broke Ortega's connection to Idaho Falls on Sunday night.
Ortega has an extensive record, ranging from domestic violence to drug charges. Sources say a police investigation has uncovered evidence suggesting Ortega has a fixation on the White House.

We can only reach one of two conclusions from this. Either these ‘Occupiers’ are all mentally unstable or they and this shooter are the true Patiots.
I’m willing to believe either conclusion.
Everynight in southeast DC....thousands of folks go to bed and worry about a bullet hitting their house. Maybe someone will finally wake up now and start some gang clean-up around DC.
Check out his name !!
If I wanted to be a threat to a person I’d try shooting them when they’re actally not a thousand miles away at the time.
The Obama camp made this up, all dictators manufacture assassination conspiracies when they need to quickly force the public into turning it’s collective anger against some third party enemy. Like the US, or at least the Tea Party parts of it. Race card to follow no doubt.
Either the guy is an idiot or its a setup, Obama is in Australia.Or when this actually happened he was in Hawaii.
Kind of like it was Snowball who destroyed the windmill?
Bullet proof glass.
There was an incident during the Clintoon administration where a bullet went through the window of the White House Press Room. After that, all the windows were replaced with bullet resistant glass. This kind of glass does often trap the slug.
Thanks. Stupid me...thought they were using plain old glass.
It could be both. But I'm thinking if it was a setup, the guy would have been an anglo.
Nice. He was just "blending in", not an "occupier" per se.
They really do think we're idiots.
You b dreaming man,
Those b Holders people
Ain’t nothing gonna happen there
Longest case of gun-walking I’ve ever heard of. Maybe Holder can bring some DOJ boys and some rocking chairs and sit on the WH porch and look mean.
No surprie at all the bullet was found in the window, because the window is not a pane of glass, but a few inches of high-tech laminated plastics such as Lexan etc.
Wait until it’s a packed stadium that’s the target...
Bullet proof windows all around.
I read a book about that once.
His name isn’t the problem.
He’s mentally ill, as in, deranged.
something smells here...how did anyone get by the sharp shooters on the roof???? were they on mandatory break or something?
Name’s a problem with me .Be a hoot if it was related to fast and furious!aka Gunwalker
That line jumped out at me too. They should have just stuck with the facts and reported what is known to be true, which is that he had been hanging out at the OWS encampment. Unless they know a whole lot about the guy, it’s conjecture to say whether he was one of them or just blending in.
