Four people, including a 17-year-old girl, were shot and wounded Tuesday night outside a strip of stores on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in Southeast Washington, according to D.C. police.
Authorities said none of the injuries appeared to be life threatening. The other victims were two men and a woman. All were taken to hospitals for treatment.
The shooting occurred about 10:30 p.m. in the 2900 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, lined with a liquor store, two markets and a sandwich shop. Police reported that at least 12 gunshots were fired into a crowd.
A police report says officers found a male victim in front of the shops, and he told them others had been hit. Two had gone inside one of the markets and a third had gone into a house on nearby Mellon Street.
Police did not say if one or more of the victims was an intended target. One man was wounded in the ankle; descriptions of other injuries were not immediately available.
