ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Police say two people have been taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds after a daytime shooting in Arlington County’s Crystal City neighborhood.
Police spokeswoman Ashley Savage says police were searching an office building on Crystal Drive but authorities do not believe that an active shooter remains at large or that any active threat remains.
Police say the two people were in critical condition. Police received 911 calls shortly before noon Wednesday to report the incident. Building workers were asked to shelter in place while police concluded their searches.
Crystal City is just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., and home to many office buildings undergoing renovation as preparations are made to absorb a new Amazon headquarters that will bring more than 25,000 jobs to the region.
