Shots were heard near the White House last Friday, but Secret Service said at the time that the incident appeared unrelated to President Obama, who was not in Washington. The Secret Service has not conclusively related the bullets found to the incident on Friday, according to the report.

However, police have issued a warrant for the arrest of Oscar Ortega-Hernandez, 21, who has been linked to a car containing an assault rifle that was found near the area where shots were heard.
