WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Police are seeking a vehicle and two people of interest that they believe may be connected to a shooting rampage that injured 13 people on North Capitol Street NW.
The shooting occurred early Monday outside a subsidized-apartment building near the corner of New York Avenue.
The vehicle police are looking for is a dark blue or black 1999 Mercedes Benz CLK 320 coupe with DC tags EF7810.
The people of interest are 19-year-olds Craig Wilson and Andrew Davon Allen. Wilson is described as a 6-foot-2 black
male weighing 140 pounds with brown eyes, black hair and a dark complexion. Allen is a black, medium-complexioned male, who is 5-foot-8, 150 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.
Surveillance video released by police shows two cars speeding past a crowd of people standing outside the Tyler House, with shots fired from at least one of the vehicles. People can be seen immediately scrambling and diving to the ground.
Police say most of the injuries were minor, though one man was critically injured.
Authorities didn’t immediately reveal a motive, but Chief Cathy Lanier noted that a nearby nightclub had let out just before the shooting.
The Metropolitan Police Department is offering a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this assault.
