Man impersonated police officer, shot 2 people in DC

Authorities are looking for a suspect who they say impersonated a police officer, gained access to “a residential facility,” and shot a man and a minor in D.C. on Tuesday.

First responders were called to the report of a shooting in the 6000 block of Clay Street NE at around 2:54 p.m.

Police said a preliminary investigation suggests that the suspect, who wore a fake badge and a police vest, was granted entry to a residential facility.

One of the victims was a male juvenile, police said. His exact age was not provided.
