WASHINGTON — A Texas man who was wanted by authorities in his home state was apprehended near the Vice President’s residence in D.C. on Wednesday.
31-year-old Paul Murray, of San Antonio, Texas, was stopped by the U.S. Secret Service outside the United States Naval Observatory—which is where Vice President Kamala Harris’ home is located.
A rifle and ammunition were found in Murray’s car and he was arrested. Police said they were looking for Murray in response to an intelligence bulletin out of Texas but did not disclose the details of that bulletin.
Murray faces charges of “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.”
It is not clear if the suspect intended to do harm.
