Police Fail To Identify Suspect In Deadly Shooting

Two individuals were killed and five others injured in a shooting that occurred over the weekend in Washington, D.C.

On Monday morning, detectives were still trying to identify a suspect.

According to the Metropolitan Police Department, an initial investigation suggests that a suspect or suspects deliberately fired shots at the victims at around 3 a.m. on Sunday at the junction of 7th Street and P Street Northwest. At the moment, there was no apparent reason.

In the 600 block of P Street, a total of five individuals, consisting of three males and two females, were discovered with gunshot wounds.

Authorities have named the two victims who died as Anthony Brown, a 32-year-old from Washington, D.C., and Jay Lucks, also 32, from Baltimore.

While information on the incident is still sketchy, authorities have stated that they saw a suspect, described as average build, running away in the 700 block of P Street Northwest wearing light-colored slacks and a blue shirt. The neighboring surveillance camera captured an image of the car the suspect fled in, which is thought to be a black Infiniti.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting, according to a statement from the MPD. Upon arrival, they discovered two guys who had been shot and succumbed to their injuries at the site. The injured were sent to nearby medical facilities to get their wounds treated.

Initial evidence gathered by the police points to the possibility that one or more perpetrators shot the victims.

If you have information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the shooters, the Metropolitan Police Department is offering a reward of up to $50,000.

The police ask anybody with information on the incident or who sees the suspect(s) to call 202-727-9099.

With 32 killings reported so far this year, a 32% decrease from 47 homicides registered in the city at the same stage last year, as of Monday.
