A man was arrested outside of Vice-President Kamala Harris' home yesterday...
And he was found armed with a gun and ammunition.
Which is extremely concerning to hear, we must say.
Here's the full story...
Now, at fifty-six years old, Kamala Harris has achieved so much...
And she's truly inspirational to women all around the world.
As a strong member of the Democratic party, Harris has a rich background in politics and law...
And she served as the Senator of California from 2017 to 2021 and as the attorney general of California from 2011 to 2017.
She gained global recognition when she was confirmed last year as Joe Biden's running mate in the 2020 election...
And in November 2020, the world watched on in both joy and disbelief as Biden and Harris won the election - resulting in the notorious Republican Donald Trump serving only 1 term as president.
Harris officially became the Vice President of the United States on January 20th...
And it was a moment that made history.
Firstly, she's the first woman of color to ever officially enter the White House.
She's both African American and South Asian.
"Seeing her being prestigious, being strong, being black, being a woman? I feel change is coming," said Tanya Hudson, a Harlem resident.
"Just sitting here listening to my wife and daughters waxing poetic about Kamala Harris being the 1st woman Vice-President," agreed Twitter user @Wasanegg.
And secondly, she's the first-ever woman to be sworn into office who isn't the first lady.
Yep, no woman in our country's history has ever been sworn into the White House... never mind a woman of color!
And alongside making history, Harris has also taken on another role that's equally as important.
She's become a role model to millions of girls and young women all around the world.
Harris has proven that women can hold big positions and assert authority and power...
And she has been pushing for change in an attempt to make a huge difference in the world for so many young girls and women.
So, as you can see...
Vice-President Kamala Harris is a woman who's done so much for our country... and she's got so many plans for our future.
Harris, alongside President Biden, has been very busy since January 20th...
And they've both been working hard while settling into their new roles, including immediately reversing many of Donald Trump's former policies.
But among their millions of loyal supporters...
Come their critics and, of course, angry Trump supporters who are still feeling outraged over the outcome of the election.
We all remember the January 6th riots, don't we?
Thousands of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building in Washington in protest of Biden's inauguration and, of course, demanding that their election is "taken back."
This resulted in the deaths of 5 people and the injuries of many police officers.
Sadly, there's still a lot of anger over the election outcome...
And this anger potentially put Harris in a lot of danger this week after someone attempted to break into her house armed with a gun and ammunition.
TMZ has reported that on Wednesday afternoon, a man was arrested outside of Harris' Washington D.C. residence.
Secret Service agents stopped the man at around 1 pm ET near the Naval Observatory, which is the traditional Vice President's mansion, and he was arrested shortly afterward.
The man was later identified as thirty-one-year-old Texas resident Paul Murray.

A police report obtained by CNN shows officers allege Murray was in possession of an "AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, 113 rounds of unregistered ammunition, and five 30 round magazines."
According to police, he's been charged with several counts:

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.
Murray's motives are currently unknown...
There's no doubt this was an utterly frightening situation.
We're just glad that Harris and her family are okay.
