Wait....what?

It's all bullet proof.

The perpetrator might as well have been throwing waffles at the damn place.

Well that's just weird. I doubt they were shooting at the house though.

Although it's in the process of gentrification DC is a ghetto so stray gunfire in general is no surprise. That said, this is pretty weird. I wonder why they suspect this Ortega guy

Probably because they found an uzi or something like that in his car nearby that matched the bullets they found.

The guy must be a whack job. First of all, I guess he sped passed the WH and fired a burst?  ??? Did he use his own car? If not, what "items" could he have left that would lead police to him? Sounds like a loon and not a very bright one.

Kinda makes you wonder that some random schmuck like this could pull off even an attempt as he apparently did.

Yeah, right. Seems like he would have gotten away with it too had he not been such a dumb ass. There has to be more to this. I'm curious to see what comes out in the days ahead.

Still seems like stray gunfire to me, but this cat might just be crazy enough to think shooting up the White House would accomplish something.
