D.C. police released a short video Thursday showing what they described as two “persons of interest” boarding the bus just before the shooting and asked for the public’s help in identifying the people in the clip.

Atchison and Gray will be held in Florida on fugitive from justice charges pending their extradition, D.C. police said.

The killing was one of at least nine in the city in eight days.
