WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Police have arrested the man who allegedlyfired shots at the WhiteHouse Friday night,according to Pennsylvania State Police and Secret Service.

Oscar Ortega-Hernandez was found in an Indiana, Pennsylvania hotel around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Special agent Edwin Donovan says he remains in custody at this time.

Monte McCall, a businessman who met Ortega-Hernandez recently, provided some insight as to why he may have allegedly fired shots at the White House.

"He compared President Obama to the anti-christ," McCall said. "He seemed pretty sincere in what he believed, but he seemed very troubled."

Some people are wondering why it took the Secret Service so long to discover that a White House window had been shattered by a bullet and why the public was notified earlier that a potentially dangerous fugitive was on the loose.

But author Ronald Kessler, who wrote a book about the Secret Service and has offered criticism of the agency in the past, said he could not find fault with the Secret Service in this case.
