Bicyclists open fire near Capitol Hill

Two people on bicycles fired shots as they pursued a car late Saturday in a Northeast Washington neighborhood on the edge of Capitol Hill, authorities said.

D.C. police said they received no reports of injuries or damage in connection with the incident, which occurred about 11:30 p.m. near 10th and F Streets NE.

Police said they had not yet learned of a motive in the incident, but said it did not appear to be a random attack.

Officers will patrol the area and will give special attention to people on bicycles as well as to enforcing traffic regulations, police said.

The area involved is a residential rowhouse neighborhood a bit more than a mile from the Capitol, and two blocks south of H Street NE.
