FILE - This Nov. 16, 2011 file photo shows law enforcement officers photographing a window at the White House in Washington, as seen from the South Lawn. A bullet hit an exterior window of the White House and was stopped by ballistic glass, the Secret Service said. An additional round of ammunition was found on the White House exterior. The bullets were found Tuesday morning.  An Idaho man who pleaded guilty to shooting at and hitting the White House is set to be sentenced.  Prosecutors say Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez should spend 27 years in prison for the 2011 shooting. His sentencing is scheduled for Monday afternoon. No one was injured, but prosecutors say Ortega-Hernandez hit the executive mansion about eight times and did nearly $100,000 in damage.  (AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari, File)
