A 31-year-old San Antonio armed man Paul Murray was on Wednesday afternoon (March 17) arrested by secret service operatives near the house of vice president Kamala Harris.
Murray was stopped and detained right outside the Naval Observatory, which contains Harris’ residence, in response to an intelligence release that began from Texas. He 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.
A former capitol Hill employee, Andrew Leyden witnessed the arrest and shared a clip of the incident on social media.
“A bunch of cops passed me at the National Cathedral,” he told CNBC. “What was really odd was it was marked units and unmarked units.” Take a look below.
