One of 13 people hurt in a shooting in Washington, D. C. early Monday morning is in critical condition, WJLA-TV reports.
"All of the victims were conscious and breathing when they were found, though, police said. The most serious injury was sustained by one person who was reportedly shot in the back. At least three of the victims were women," WJLA reported.
Washington D. C. Police report that 13 people were shot in a drive-by shooting outside an apartment building in northwest DC about 2 a.m.
The shooting happened near the intersection of New York Avenue and North Capitol Street. D. C. metro police say gunmen in a speeding car shot at a crowd standing outside the building. D.C. police at first said that of the 13 people who were hurt, none had life-threatening injuries but now WJLA is reporting that one victim is in critical condition.
Police are looking at surveillance video to try to identify anyone involved in the shooting that left 11 injured. That video is posted here. But viewer discretion is advised. D. C. police say shots came from at least two cars seen speeding from the scene.
My Fox 8 reports, "Detectives are now reviewing surveillance video to hopefully identify suspects in the case. The video could be released to the public to help officers locate an older-model BMW and a light or grey sedan."
The most seriously injured had a gunshot wound to the back. But fortunately, none of the injures are life-threatening.
Police say they don’t have a motive yet. Detectives are interviewing witnesses and examining evidence.
"We've got to interview a ton" of witnesses, said Peter Newsham, assistant D.C. police chief.
Police don’t know if all or any of the 13 shooting victims came from a nearby nightclub.
"Whether they came from the club, I'm not sure," Washington, D. C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. "There is usually a pretty good crowd out here — Saturday night, Sunday night."
