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.
“Once inside and after a brief conversation, the suspect produced a handgun and discharged it multiple times, striking both victims,” authorities said in a press release.
One of the victims was a male juvenile, police said. His exact age was not provided.
The victims were taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
