A man was arrested Wednesday for firearm and ammunition offenses on Naval Observatory grounds near the official residence of the Vice President of the United States.
ABC News reports that VP Kamala Harris was not in the residence, as it is “undergoing renovations.”
The suspect is identified as 31-year-old Paul Murray from San Antonio, Texas.

CNBC notes that police discovered “a rifle and ammunition in [Murray’s] car,” which was located “in a garage in downtown Washington.”
Fox 5 explained that Murray allegedly had a “large capacity” ammunition magazine as well.
Police had been alerted about Murry and were searching for him as a result of “an intelligence bulletin” sent from Texas.
