According to the U.S. Park Police, his name is Oscar Ortega. There is an arrest warrant out for him in connection with a Friday gunfire incident, and officials released the photo this morning after bullets were found on the White House exterior Tuesday.
He is described as a “21-year-old Hispanic man, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 160 pounds, with a medium build, brown eyes and black hair.” He is apparently mentally ill, may have blended in with Occupy DC activists, and has a “fixation with the White House.”
Doesn’t fit the Tea Party profile, but it won’t be long before the “Blame Righty” meme gets underway, anyway.
Ditto what Ed Morrissey said: “[L]et’s hope they find Ortega before he hurts himself, and especially before he hurts anyone else.”
Update (DP): AP reports the suspect has been arrested at a Pennsylvania hotel.
