WASHINGTON — Police say a man has been arrested following a report of a shooting inside a car on the National Mall.

U.S. Park Police say a car matching the description of the one involved was stopped in northwest Washington on Tuesday afternoon and one man was taken into custody.

Earlier, a gun was found on Rock Creek Parkway near the Kennedy Center.
