A Texas man wanted by the police was stopped by the U.S. Secret Service and arrested Wednesday afternoon near the residence of Vice President Kamala Harris, authorities said. Police said they found a rifle and ammunition in that man’s car, which was parked some distance away in a garage in downtown Washington.
The man, Paul Murray, 31, of San Antonio, was stopped by Secret Service officers at just after noon in the northwest section of Washington on Massachusetts Avenue, right outside of the Naval Observatory, which contains Harris’ residence. Police said they arrested Murray in response to an intelligence bulletin that originated from Texas.
