Attempt to assassinate the president

A federal prosecutor said Thursday that a man accused of firing shots near the White House will be charged with attempting to assassinate the president or a member of his staff.

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, who was detained Wednesday in Pennsylvania, was allegedly involved in a shooting Friday night near the White House. Two bullets were found on the White House grounds, one of which hit the building's bulletproof windows, according to the Secret Service.
