A 31-year-old man from San Antonio, Texas, was arrested and charged with possessing a firearm and ammunition near the official Washington, D.C. residence of Vice President Kamala Harris on Wednesday, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Department told TheWrap.
The man, Paul Murray, was detained shortly after noon after the U.S. Secret Service received an intelligence bulletin from Texas about a suspicious person, according to the MPD. A rifle and ammunition were found in his vehicle, and Murray was arrested for carrying a dangerous weapon, carrying a rifle or shotgun outside of a business, possession of unregistered ammunition and possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device.
The vice president and second gentleman are not currently living at the residence, located on the grounds of the Naval Observatory, as it undergoes renovations.
A spokesperson for Harris directed all inquiries to the Secret Service when reached by TheWrap.
