WASHINGTON (WNEW) - Police have made an arrest in connection with a double shooting that took place outside the National Zoo, leaving two people with non-life threatening injuries.

The shooting occurred outside the gates of the National Zoo — located in the 300 block of Connecticut Avenue in NW — amid a large crowd of roughly 30 to 50 people around 5:17 p.m. on April 21.

On Saturday, police announced the arrest of a 14-year-old male from Southwest, who they say fired a handgun multiple times striking two individuals, charging him with “assault with a dangerous weapon.”

Investigations revealed the boy was the lone gunman responsible for the shooting.
