The US Secret Service is investigating after discovering a bullet lodged in anti-ballistic glass at the White House. A second bullet was discovered outside, leading to fears that someone might have taken a potshot at the building.
Barack and Michelle Obama were not at the White House when shooting incident happened. They were in California, then went to Hawaii for a meeting, and have now travelled on to Australia, where they landed earlier today.
It’s said to be too early to speculate as to whether the discovery is linked to a shooting incident that occurred near the building late last week, which is still being investigated. That shooting was initially treated as being only coincidentally close to the White House, although the discovery of these bullets would seem to suggest a more deliberate targeting.
