On Wednesday, a man was arrested near the Naval Observatory in Washington. The Secret Service had initially stopped him. Later, a gun and ammunition was found in his car. As per tradition, the vice president lives in the Naval Observatory. Vice President Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff may not have been residing there as the building is under repair.


NBC News received confirmation from the Secret Service that a man had been detained near the observatory by its agents. They did not confirm whether Harris or Emhoff were at the observatory.


The man who was detained and then arrested is Paul Michael Murray, a 31-year old Texan. Around noon on Wednesday, he was detained for suspicious behavior near the observatory.


The Metropolitan Police arrested him. Police says that the Texan was the subject of an intelligence bulletin. It had been sent from the Lone Star stars and was circulated among the police near the observatory. The report said that he had been experiencing delusions. He was paranoid that the government and the military were after him.


No reason has been given for his presence near the observatory. The purpose for which the San Antonio resident traveled from Texas to Washington DC is also unknown. However, police also said that his mother received a text saying that he was in Washington and that he would take care of his problem.


The police report, seen by CBS, says that he had an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, 113 rounds of unregistered ammunition and five thirty-round magazines.


Murray has been remanded to custody. He faces charges that include carrying a dangerous weapon and carrying a rifle or shotgun outside a business. He is also charged for possession of unregistered ammunition and possession of a large-capacity ammunition feeding device.
