Man who shot at White House faces more charges

Man accused of trying to kill President Obama by firing at White House faces more charges By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' A man accused of trying to kill President Barack Obama by firing up to a dozen shots at the White House in November is facing more charges.

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez was arrested days after the Nov. 11 shooting and was formally charged Tuesday by a grand jury in Washington.

A five-page document charges him with 17 counts, including attempting to assassinate the president. Also, he faces charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, using a weapon during a crime of violence and doing damage to the White House of more than $1,000.

Ortega-Hernandez is from Idaho Falls, Idaho. During a December hearing, a judge ordered him detained without bond.

A telephone message left Tuesday for Ortega-Hernandez's lawyer was not immediately returned.
