Texas man arrested near U.S. vice president’s residence on weapons charge: Secret Service

A San Antonio man was arrested near Vice President Kamala Harris’s official residence in Washington on Wednesday (March 17) and was charged with weapons-related offenses, the U.S. Secret Service said.

The Secret Service, responsible for the security of the president and vice president, said the suspect, Paul Murray, 31, was detained by its uniformed officers on the street near a government complex that houses the vice president’s residence and the U.S. Naval Observatory.

Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department said its officers then arrested and charged Murray.

The department said the arrest was sparked by an “intelligence bulletin that originated from Texas.” The department did not elaborate on the bulletin’s contents.

A reporter at Fox News’ Washington affiliate tweeted a Texas law enforcement bulletin that said Murray had been experiencing “paranoid delusions” that the military or government wanted to kill him and that he sent his mother a text message saying he was in Washington and was going to “take care of his problem.”

D.C. police said Murray was charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, carrying a rifle or shotgun outside of a business, possession of unregistered ammunition and possession of a large-capacity ammunition feeding device.

Police said a rifle and ammunition were recovered from Murray’s vehicle.
