Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez (born 1990) is the alleged gunman from Idaho Falls, Idaho who fired rounds from an AK-47 which hit the White House on Friday, November 11, 2011, smashing a window to the Yellow Oval Room protected by ballistic glass. He was arrested on November 16, 2011 at a hotel in Indiana, Pennsylvania. He reportedly was sighted at the Occupy Washington D.C. encampment at McPherson Park at one point, but an investigation found no connection between Ortega-Hernandez and Occupy D.C.

On Friday, November 11, 2011, reports of gunfire from coming from the direction of the The Ellipse and Washington Monument were reported. A suspicious car was then seen speeding away from the scene, eventually abandoned at the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge as the driver was witnessed crossing into Virginia on foot. One of the bullets smashed the exterior window of the Yellow Oval Room of the White House, and another was found on November 15, 2011 on south side. Evidence recovered from the abandoned vehicle was later linked to Ortega-Hernandez.
