MPD: Dozens of bullets fired in drive-by shooting at construction site in NW, 2 hurt

The shooting led to a chase across D.C., police say.

WASHINGTON — Two people were hurt in a drive-by shooting at a construction site in Northwest D.C. Thursday afternoon

According to DC police, the shooting took place just after 2:30 p.m. at 34th and Macomb Streets, NW.

Assistant Police Chief Andre Wright said officers observed a silver Dodge Charger occupied by four people fired dozens of bullets from the car, striking two adults – one was struck in the arm, the other was struck in the leg. Both men suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers pursued the car with the help of a helicopter through DC. The pursuit eventually ended in the 4300 block of Chaplin and F Streets, SE when the Dodge Charger crashed into an unoccupied vehicle on that street.

Wright said all four suspects, one of which is a juvenile, attempted to run from officers. All four were later caught by D.C. Police. Multiple firearms were recovered from the suspects, Wright said.

There were no injuries to the suspects or officers involved in the arrest or chase, Wright said.

The victims of the shooting at the initial scene are conscious and breathing, according to DC Police.

There is not a clear motive as to what lead to the shooting.
