WASHINGTON (DC News Now) — The Metropolitan Police Department said four men were shot in Northwest early Thursday afternoon.
The shooting happened shortly before 1:10 p.m. in the 1200 block of N. Capitol St. NW at Tyler House apartments.
MPD said the four men who were hit by gunfire were inside the building, although it appeared the shooting happened on the street. All the men were conscious and breathing when emergency workers got there.
At a news conference, police said one man had critical injuries. The others’ injuries weren’t considered life-threatening.
Officers initially said they were looking for a green car that may have been involved in the shooting. They later updated the information to say they were looking for a white sedan that appeared to be a Kia.
The location of the shooting was a short walk from the scene of a quintuple shooting that took place on O Street NW in August. As a result of that shooting, two people died.
