NBC 4 News reporter Scott MacFarlane reported Wednesday that another attacker of the U.S. Capitol was arrested, but the man appears to have been outside the residence of Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington, D.C.

The vice president's home at the Naval Observatory seen here in 2016.

A 31-year-old man, from San Antonio, Texas, was detained by uniformed officers on the street near a government complex that houses the vice president's residence and the US Naval Observatory.

A Texas intelligence agency alerted federal partners Wednesday that Murray might have been in Washington D.C. He "has been experiencing paranoid delusions of people", the bulletin added.

Metropolitan police said Paul Murray of San Antonio was held on charges that he carried a large-capacity ammunition-feeding device, a unsafe weapon, a rifle and unregistered ammunition.

Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, have not been living at the observatory since the inauguration as it has been undergoing repairs.

No one was injured.

Capitol Police had issued a region-wide search for the man ahead of Secret Service spotting him.

The couple are now staying at the nearby Blair House, a guest home for the White House, as the official residence undergoes renovations.
