WASHINGTON - The 21-year-old man wanted in connection with a shooting incident near the White House last Friday is now in custody in Pennsylvania.

According to WTOP, Oscar Ramiro Oretga-Hernandez is now in custody of the Pennsylvania State Police, arrested about 12:35 p.m. Wednesday in the town of Indiana, about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh.

The Secret Service on Tuesday discovered bullets on the White House property, but it wasn't clear if they were linked to Friday's incident, where reports of gunfire coming from Constitution Avenue NW, near the Ellipse and Washington Monument, prompted a major police investigation.

A suspicious car reportedly sped away from the scene westbound on Constitution Avenue and was abandoned at 23rd Street NW, at the entrance to the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge. A man was seen running from the car and fled across the bridge to Virginia.

A U.S. Park Police spokesman, Sgt. David Schlosser, said evidence in the car linked the gunfire incident to Ortega-Hernandez. But it was unclear whether the gunfire was targeted at the White House.

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were not at the White House at the time of Friday's incident.

Police said Ortega-Hernandez was not tied to any fringe or radical groups. According to The Associated Press, Ortega-Hernandez is from Idaho Falls, Idaho, and was reported missing by his family on Oct. 31.

U.S. Park Police on Monday searched the Occupy DC encampment in McPherson Square, following up on reports of sightings of Ortega-Hernandez among the protest group.
