ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Video played in court on Monday (June 27) revealed the moment a Pennsylvania man was shot by Secret Service as he carried a gun outside the White House in May. It showed 31-year-old Jesse Olivieri ignoring officers' warnings to stop as he made his way toward the south entrance of the building. His weapon was identified as a .22-caliber semiautomatic, according to local media. Olivieri reportedly told officers that he had come to the White House "to shoot people." He faces a felony charge of resisting an officer with a dangerous weapon, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, local media said. Vice President Joe Biden was inside the White House at the time of the incident; however, President Barack Obama was away.
