UPDATE: Authorities are investigating two bullets that hit the White House, one of them apparently cracking a window on the residential level where President Barack Obama and his family live.Of course, this is D.C. which means the bullet could have come from just about anywhere. The city has one of the toughest gun control laws in the country, which means it also has one of the highest rates of gun crime in the country. There are bullets flying around all over the place in that town.
The Secret Service was investigating Wednesday whether the shots were connected to reports of shots fired last week while Obama was headed to a summit in Hawaii. The Secret Service said it discovered the bullets Tuesday.
Federal officials have now set up a joint task force to investigate last week's shooting. Local police have been warned the suspect should be considered unstable.
