Accused White House Shooter Appears in Court

WASHINGTON -- A man accused of firing an assault rifle at the White House has made his first appearance in court in Washington.

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez appeared in federal court Monday and was appointed a public defender and ordered held without bond. A judge set the next court hearing for Nov. 28, following a psychological evaluation.

Ortega was arrested last week in Pennsylvania. The Idaho Falls, Idaho, resident is accused of driving by the White House on the evening of Nov. 11 and firing at the White House from his vehicle. One of the apparently nine rounds he fired cracked a window of the first family's living quarters.

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were away, and no one was injured.
