The suspect in the shooting of an Idaho pastor was arrested Tuesday night after throwing “suspicious objects” over the south fence of the White House, according to CNN.

Kyle Odom is the sole suspect in the Sunday shooting of Pastor Tim Remington, a religious leader who spoke at a Ted Cruz rally a day before he was shot. The incident at the White House began around 8:30 p.m. ET, a source told CNN. The Secret Service took Odom into custody, according to the CNN report.

Police have said the shooting in Remington’s church in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, was “a preplanned attack,” but they were still searching for a motive, according to CNN.
