• US Secret Service  stooped Texas man outside VP Harris' home
  • The suspect suffered from delusions that the government was going to harm him
  • An inspection of his vehicle discovered an AR-14 assault rifle and a large amount of ammunition

A Texas man, who was stopped by U.S. Secret Service and arrested on Wednesday near the Washington, D.C., residence of Vice President Kamala Harris, had a rifle and large amounts of ammunition inside his vehicle that was parked a few miles away, authorities said.

Paul Murray, 31, had an AR-15 automatic rifle, more than 100 rounds of ammunition and five 30-round magazine clips inside his black Chevrolet Impala, which was parked in garage near the Washington Convention Center.

The San Antonio man, who was wanted by police, was stopped by Secret Service on the 3,400 block of Massachusetts Avenue a few minutes after 12 p.m. outside the U.S. Naval Observatory, where Harris’ residence is located.

A region-wide intelligence bulletin on the suspect found that he had been suffering from delusions that someone in the government wanted to harm him.

White House reporter Mike Valerio posted the bulletin on Twitter:

“NEW >> This is regional BOLO for Paul Murray, arrested at the Naval Observatory today:

The property houses @VP residence... Murray, according to this alert, experienced paranoid delusions of people in the military and government wanting to harm him."

Andrew Leyden, a former staff member on Capitol Hill who lives near the observatory, recorded a video of Murray’s arrest. He said he was on his way to the Irish Embassy to film a St. Patrick’s Day video when he noticed various police vehicles passing by. "A bunch of cops passed me at the National Cathedral. What was really odd was it was marked units and unmarked units,” Leyden told CNBC. “I saw that kind of scraggly looking guy, cuffed.”

Police said Vice President Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, were not residing at the Naval Observatory at the time of the incident. The residence is currently undergoing renovations.

Murray was charges with several counts, including 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.
