Suspected shooter Oscar Ortega

But prosecutors want a more thorough psychological evaluation of Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, the man accused of firing bullets at the White House on Nov. 11:

The prosecution’s motion, by Assistant U.S. Attorney George P. Varghese, acknowledged the competency ruling and states “the government does not dispute that conclusion” but contends “it was based only on a 50-minute screening.”

If convicted of attempted assassination of the president or a member of his staff, Ortega-Hernandez would face life in prison.
