A teen is fighting for his life after he was critically injured in a double shooting in Northeast DC, Metro police said.

The shooting happened around 2:20 p.m. Friday in the 200 block of 54th Street, police said.

DC Metro Police Chief Peter Newsham said an officer in the area heard multiple gunshots and arrived at the scene to find a man and a juvenile with gunshot wounds.

The man was shot and has non-life-threatening injuries. The juvenile was shot multiple times and has life-threatening injuries, police said. The juvenile is listed in critical condition at a hospital.

"He’s struggling for his life right now," Newsham said on the juvenile’s condition.

It's unclear if the victims were targeted.

"It looks like both of the victims were inside of a vehicle with heavy tint, so it appears like the vehicle was targeted. It would be hard to say which one of the folks inside the vehicle was actually targeted," Newsham said.

No further details were immediately available.
