White House Shooter Will Accept Plea Deal


(WASHINGTON, DC) – An Idaho Falls man accused of firing a gun at the White House in 2011 has reached a plea agreement with federal prosecutors. Oscar Ortega-Hernandez will make his plea Wednesday, which will allow him to avoid a jury trial scheduled for November. Ortega-Hernandez is accused of firing off at least five shots with a semi-automatic rifle. No injuries were reported in the incident and the president and his family were out of town at the time. Ortega-Hernandez told friends that Barack Obama was the Antichrist and that he needed to kill him.
