Four people were shot in Northeast D.C. on Wednesday afternoon and at least two of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries, according to public safety officials.
First responders were called to the 3900 block of Minnesota Avenue Northeast at 1:11 p.m. and located four gunshot victims, said D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services spokesman Tim Wilson.
Two men suffered life-threatening injuries and a spokesman for the police department said one man had been shot multiple times and another once in the chest. A third man was shot in the leg and the fourth victim's injuries were not known.
It was not known whether the victims were adults or juveniles.
Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Araz Alali said investigators are looking for one or possibly two shooting suspects. No descriptions of the suspects were available.
