Four people were injured in a Friday night shooting on the 1300 block of North Capitol Street Northwest, police said.

One adult woman, two adult men and one male juvenile were all recuperating on Saturday, said police spokesman Officer Araz Alali. Most of them were shot in their lower extremities and the injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

Officer Alali said the four people were standing outside in front of the North Capitol Street address when an unknown suspect started firing shots. Late Saturday morning, police had not identified a suspect or made any arrests.
