Police Say At Least 3 Shot, 'Active Threat' in Northwest D.C.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Police and federal agents swarmed into a northwest Washington neighborhood on Friday after at least three people were shot in a flurry of gunfire.

City officials warned people to stay inside because of an “active threat” as dozens of officers in tactical gear were searching for the suspect.

The law enforcement officers responded to the scene in the Van Ness neighborhood of Washington shortly before 3:30 p.m.

Assistant Police Chief Stuart Emerman says the victims include two men, who were in stable condition, and a juvenile female who suffered from a “minor gunshot wound.”
