Police seek persons of interest in May 6 shooting near Ballou High School

D.C. police released a video showing people who are wanted in connection with a shooting incident that occurred two weeks ago near Ballou High School in Southeast Washington.

Police said they are looking for two people of interest in the May 6 incident when a person fired a gun on a group just before 9 a.m. in the 3100 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE near a bus stop.

Three people — two of them 17-year-old students believed to attend Ballou — were wounded, police said. Bystanders and shoppers in area of stores scattered and several schools in the surrounding area were put on lockdown for a time.

D.C. Crime Solvers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

Police ask that anyone with information call 202-727-9099.
