Bullet Hits White House

Bullet Hits White House, U.S. authorities are investigating two bullets that hit the White House, one of them apparently cracking a window on the residential level while President Barack Obama was traveling.
The Secret Service was investigating whether the bullets are connected to reports of shots fired Friday night while Obama was headed to a summit in Hawaii. The Secret Service said it discovered the bullet holes Tuesday and that the bullet that hit the window was stopped by ballistic glass.
On Wednesday, officials could be seen taking photographs of a window on the south face of the executive mansion. The window they were inspecting is in front of the so-called Yellow Oval Room, according to a White House website. The room is in the middle of the living quarters on the floor that includes the president’s bedroom and the Lincoln Bedroom.
The location of the second bullet was not disclosed by the Secret Service, which said only that the bullet “was found on the exterior of the White House.”
The discovery of the bullet holes follows reports of gunfire near the White House on Friday night. Witnesses heard shots and saw two speeding vehicles in the area.
The Secret Service said it has not conclusively connected Friday’s incident with the bullets found at the White House. Previously, authorities had said the White House did not appear to have been targeted Friday night.
