White House Shooter Could Make Plea Deal


(WASHINGTON, DC) – An Idaho Falls man accused of firing off five gunshots at the White House in 2011 could make a plea deal with prosecutors. Oscar Ortega-Hernandez allegedly used a semi-automatic version of an AK-47 in the attack, which broke at least one outer window. The Obamas were out of town at the time of the shooting. Prosecutors say Ortega-Hernandez is a conspiracy theorist who believes President Obama is the antichrist. He faces a jury trial later this month.
