Police investigate quadruple shooting near Northwest DC apartment

All of the men were found conscious near the Tyler House Apartments and police are asking the public to look out for what appears to be a white Kia Sedan.

WASHINGTON — Correction: DC Police initially confirmed to WUSA9 different lookout information. They have since changed their guidance and are asking the public to be on the lookout for what appears to be a Kia Sedan with unknown tags. 

A shooting around 1:30 p.m. in Northwest D.C. left four men injured Thursday.

All of the men were found conscious and breathing, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. The men were found shot in the 1200 block of North Capitol Street, Northwest near Tyler House Apartments. Officials have not yet confirmed if shots were fired from inside or outside of the building, or where exactly the men shot were located.

Police are asking the public to look out for a car that appears to be a Kia Sedan with unknown tags, pictured in the tweet below.

"Any violence in our city we take seriously, and in reference to this community, we are always out here," said First District Commander Tasha Bryant during Thursday's press conference.  

The quadruple shooting comes four days after a shooting on the same 1200 block of North Capitol Street Northwest.  

A man who said he was outside the Tyler House Apartments told WUSA9 that his speaker that was resting on the back of his wheelchair was hit by a bullet. Robert Wheeler, 62, says his nephew pulled him down on the ground and saved his life. 

Just a little over a month ago, a handful of people were shot nearby at what police called an "open-air drug market" in Northwest. 

Two victims were pronounced dead; cousins 43-year-old Rashad Johnson and 53-year-old James Johnson. Three others were treated at nearby hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries after the Aug. 24 incident.

Through an initial investigation, it was determined that a "small, black SUV" driving southbound on North Capital Street, turned right on O Street and stopped in front of a building. At least two suspects exited the car and started shooting with semi-automatic guns at people on the street, before driving away westbound on O Street. 

A nearby elementary school, Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School, on P Street NW, was temporarily on lockdown as the shooting unfolded.
