2 people shot dead near popular Washington restaurant district

Two people were shot dead in Washington, DC on Thursday night as diners gathered for dinner and drinks on a street popular for its restaurants and bars.

HuffPost’s Igor Bobic, who was at the scene, said he heard 20 to 30 gunshots near 14th and R streets in Washington’s Logan Circle neighborhood shortly after 8 p.m., which scared people away from restaurants. A witness said a black sedan pulled up outside several restaurants and started pulling on the sidewalk.

It appears that several people were injured, including one inside the Mexicue restaurant.

Police were on the scene Thursday evening.

“Suddenly my friends and I heard a gunshot, then a few more gunshots. Some of us thought it was just fireworks or a tire. They kept coming… and we all got down on the ground and tried to get behind a table, ”said Claire Goldberg, who was at the Garden District bar.

Goldberg added that she saw at least three ambulances at the scene when she left the bar.
