Update: 13 were hurt in a D.C. shooting, up from the original 11 reported, according to a Boston.com top news report. The Washington D.C. shooting suspects are not in custody at this time. However, police released surveillance footage and hope the public has information about the possible shooters.
Authorities say the drive-by shooting took place early Monday about 2:10 a.m. outside an apartment at North Capitol Street and New York Avenue.
While a crowd stood outside, drivers in two vehicles approached and opened fire, striking several people. Of the 13 shot on the D.C. street, many were either struck and/or injured while fleeing from the volley of gunfire.
Thirteen were hurt in the D.C. shooting incident, but police do not a motive at this time. It's unclear if one or more people were targeted or if the victims were injured by errant rounds.
Surveillance footage on the scene showed a light-colored or grey sedan and an older year dark BMW passing by the crowd at the time of the drive-by shooting. At this time, the vehicles are "of interest" to investigators seeking additional information.
Police say a club across the street from the crime scene had just let out about 15 minutes before the 13 were hurt in the D.C. shooting. However, over the weekend, there is usually a crowd anyway. It's unknown if the victims visited the nightclub.
Undoubtedly, this incident will join the current debate on gun control and violence in this country.
