A teenager was killed, and two men were wounded in a shooting Friday afternoon in the basement of a house in Northeast Washington, police said.

The shooting happened shortly after 2 p.m. in a two-story duplex in the 400 block of Riggs Road NE, near Eastern Avenue and the border with Maryland, in the Riggs Park neighborhood.

The teenager was identified by police as Davon Fisher, 17, of Northeast. D.C. police said the two men were taken to a hospital with wounds that were not thought to be life-threatening.

D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham told reporters at the scene that detectives will "interview everybody who was in there. We'll be talking to surviving victims."

In a statement posted on the Police Department's neighborhood blog, authorities said a suspected gunman was seen running from the house after gunshots were heard.

Police said he is black, slim, about 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was wearing a black jacket, dark pants and a dark ski mask. He was last seen in an alley between Riggs Road and Oglethorpe Street in Northeast, police said.
