A spokesperson for Washington’s Metropolitan police said officers responded at 12.12pm local time (16:12pm GMT) in reference to an intelligence bulletin. The man, reported to be from San Antonio, Texas, was arrested close to the Vice President’s home, reports suggest.
The Vice President and her husband Doug Emhoff do not live at the Naval Observatory, as it is undergoing renovations.
Ms Harris was working over at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, near the White House, when the man was arrested.
The suspect has been charged with carrying a rifle or shotgun outside of a business, carrying a dangerous weapon, possession of unregistered ammunition and possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device.
His vehicle was parked in a garage in downtown Washington D.C – several miles away.
Police also found “a large capacity ammunition feeding device,” according to CNBC.
Last month, police arrested a woman in an unrelated incident after she attempted to deliver a letter to President Biden at the White House.
Secret Service agents searched her car, where they found a gun.
She was arrested on charges of carrying a pistol without a licence, possession of an unregistered firearm and possession of unregistered ammunition.
