WASHINGTON - A man who set himself on fire near the White House has died of his injuries, authorities said Thursday.
The man was identified as Arnav Gupta, from Bethesda, Maryland, a suburb of Washington.
He lit himself on fire around noon Wednesday on the Ellipse -- south of the president's residence -- and died of his injuries that evening in the hospital, US Park Police said on Twitter.
Last month, a man set his jacket on fire just outside the White House fence on Pennsylvania Avenue.
That man suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
