An armed Pennsylvania man shot by a Secret Service agent near the White House was sentenced to eight months in prison Tuesday.

Jesse A. Olivieri, 31, was approaching a White House guard booth when he was shot.

The Washington Post reports that the man will be allowed to serve his sentence at a hospital, where he is still recovering from the wound and needs to get treatment for mental illness.

It’s still unclear why Olivieri approached the White House with a silver .22-caliber Ruger handgun, but mental issues appeared to play a role, according to court record.

“He does not seem to have been motivated by a desire to harm others,” Assistant U.S. Attorney John Crabb Jr. wrote in a memo about the government’s sentencing recommendation.
