Secret Service arrests man who fired gun near Ethiopian Embassy

WASHINGTON (AP/WJLA) - The U.S. Secret Service has arrested a man who officers believe fired a gun near the Ethiopian Embassy in Washington. Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said in an e-mailed statement that Secret Service officers received a report of shots fired near the embassy around 12:15 p.m. Monday. When they arrived, officers detained a man believed to be the shooter. The man's name was not released. The Secret Service said there were no reported injuries as a result of the incident. The embassy is at 3506 International Drive in Northwest Washington. There was no immediate answer at a main embassy telephone number Monday afternoon. A protest was apparently taking place outside the embassy when the gunshots were fired. A video of the incident was posted to YouTube by Ethiopian Satellite TV. (Watch the video in the player below.)
