D.C. police release footage from shooting outside Metrobus

D.C. police released Metrobus surveillance footage Monday in the hopes of identifying two men involved in a shooting that injured four people.

The video shows two men calmly get onto the bus and then, after traveling an unknown distance, race out a middle door. One of the men steps out of the bus onto the sidewalk, and, holding a gun in his right hand, fires several shots into the distance.

The shooting took place around 9:45 p.m. Saturday in the 2800 block of Stanton Road Southeast, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. Two men and two boys — ages 20, 19, 16, and 15 — who were on the sidewalk were injured in the shooting. Police did not provide details on the nature of their injuries but said none were considered life-threatening.

The motive in the shooting is not known, police spokesman Officer Hugh Carew said.

The man who fired the gun was described as black, 6 feet 4 inches tall, 170 pounds, with black dreadlocks that were pinned back and wearing blue jeans and a black shirt with a colorful design on the back. A man seen getting on and off the bus with the first suspect was described as black, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 160-170 pounds, with long black hair, and wearing a white shirt, jeans and a black hat.
