    Three D.C. men have pleaded guilty for their roles in a drive-by shooting last year in which 13 people were injured.

    People in two cars opened fire on a crowd in the 1200 block of N. Capitol Street around 2:10 a.m. March 11, 2013.

    [DC] DC Minister Speaks About Youth Violence Following Drive-By Shooting
    Neighbors who live near the scene of Monday's drive-by shooting are uneasy because no suspects are in custody. The North Capitol Street shootings were in a gentrifying area of rapid new development and decades of poverty. A minister who's been active there for 20 years told News4's Tom Sherwood more needs to be done for the poor young people being left behind.

    Most of the victims -- seven men and six women -- were shot in their extremities and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, though one victim was in critical condition immediately following the shooting.

    Thursday, prosecutors say 20-year-old Andrew Allen, 22-year-old Keith Bobb and 21-year-old Arnell Smith, all of D.C., pleaded guilty to 13 counts of assault with intent to kill and one count each of conspiracy to commit a crime of violence, possession of a firearm during a crime of violence and tampering with physical evidence.
