Shooting Suspect Had Deep Hatred for President Obama

Your Black World reports

A man wearing all black was apparently obsessed with President Obama when he decided to fire shots at the White House with an assault rifle. He cracked the window of the family’s living quarters, but the president was away at the time.

The secret service found two bullets in the White House lawn and then hunted down Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez in Pennsylvania after a four-day manhunt. The 21-year old man from Idaho was arrested when he was identified by a desk clerk at the hotel.

Ortega was scheduled to appear at 2 pm Thursday in Federal Court. The Secret Service said they knew little about Ortega-Hernandez before the shooting, but they are obviously investigating him a great deal now. They believe that he targeted the White House out of an intense hatred of President Obama .

Businessman Monte McCall said that Ortega-Hernandez compared President Obama to the anti-christ.

"He seemed very sincere in what he believed but seemed rather troubled," McCall said.

Police are now investigating Ortega Hernandez’s mental health after the shooting. They say that they believe he felt himself to be on a mission from God to kill the president. The bullets he shot at the White House were stopped by ballistic glass.
