The arrest comes less than a week after Cameron Ross Burgess, 26, of Alabama shot and killed himself in front of the White House Saturday afternoon.

Metropolitan Police said in a Tuesday report that Burgess was found Saturday with a bullet wound to the head and a gun by his right-hand side. The Secret Service said the gunshots were not aimed at the White House. President Trump was in Mar-a-Lago at the time of that incident.
