WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — A man wanted in connection to the drive-by shooting that injured 13 people in Northwest D.C. last weekend has been arrested, police said.

Craig Steven Wilson, 19, of Southeast D.C., turned himself in to D.C. police Friday afternoon. Wilson had been wanted for his role in the drive-by shooting the took place early Monday morning outside a subsidized-apartment building on North Capitol Street NW near the corner of New York Avenue.

Police also have recovered the vehicle they believe was used in the shooting.

Wilson has been charged with assault with intent to kill.

Police still are looking for 19-year-old Andrew Davon Allen, 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.
