A Texas man in possession of a long gun and high-capacity ammunition magazines was arrested outside the vice president’s mansion in Washington, DC, Wednesday afternoon, authorities confirmed.

Cops in Texas tipped off DC-area authorities that a suspicious person was at the Naval Observatory mansion at 3400 block of Massachusetts Avenue.

Just before 12:15 p.m., the US Secret Service detained 31-year-old Paul Murray, of San Antonio, outside the residence.

The Metropolitan Police Department arrested Murray and found a rifle and ammo in his vehicle, police said.

He 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.

Police did not say what he had planned.

The US Capitol Police confirmed an alert for the unnamed person as a suspect went out to various agencies in the DC area Wednesday afternoon but did not provide details as to the intelligence provided to the agencies.
