Though details remain scarce, police are searching for the Hispanic man they believe is responsible for the shots fired near the White House this week.
Friday, witnesses reported hearing gun shots near the White House. According to the reports, witnesses heard gunfire and saw two vehicles speeding away. Upon investigation of the area, officers found an AK-47 rifle.
Two casings were recovered Tuesday on White House grounds, one having being stopped by ballistics glass from a double-paned window.
