1 killed, 5 wounded in Northeast D.C. shooting

One person was killed and five others, including two boys, were injured in a shooting Wednesday evening in Northeast Washington, police said.

The incident occurred in the 1100 block of 21st Street in the Carver Langston neighborhood just after 6 p.m., according to DC Police Chief Pamela A. Smith. Authorities said two attackers got out of a car and opened fire on the crowd.

Responding officers found five injured victims in the area – a 9-year-old boy, a woman and three men, Smith said. One man died from his injuries and the other victims were taken to the hospital, Smith said. The surviving victims reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Shortly afterward, a 12-year-old boy who investigators believe was injured in the attack arrived at the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Smith said.

Authorities released images captured by surveillance cameras of a gray or light blue four-door sedan with paper license tags and heavily tinted windows, Smith said.

Police did not immediately know what motivated the attack.
