A federal prosecutor says the man who jumped the White House fence on Friday had more than 800 rounds of ammunition in his car.  The U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, DC, also claims Omar Gonzalez had been arrested in July with a sniper rifle and a map that had the White House marked.  He was also stopped last month walking by the White House with a hatchet.  There was no arrest in that incident.  

Earlier today, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the President is concerned about the security breach, but still has confidence in the Secret Service.  Gonzalez had a knife on him when he jumped the fence and raced for the White House.  He's facing charges of entering a restricted building while carrying a weapon.
