Default Shots fired near White House

NBC reporting via Twitter:

"Shots fired near White House update: AK47 recovered from Honda abandoned by suspect; 2nd vehicle involved - NBC Washington

White House area shooting update: Suspect at large; recovered machine gun appears equipped with scope - NBC Washington"

WaPo:

"Apparently the area involved is south of the Executive Mansion, possibly between the Ellipse and the Washington Monument."

Bullet hits window at White House. No definite connection to the shots fired Friday night. Authorities are looking for Oscar Ramiro Ortega fearing he may be a threat to the President.
