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.

D.C. police released pictures of two persons of interest and a vehicle they are trying to locate in connection with Monday morning's drive-by shooting that injured 13 people in northwest D.C., News4's Pat Collins reported.

People in at least one of two cars caught on surveillance video opened fire on a crowd gathered outside the Tyler House apartments in the 1200 block of N. Capitol Street abound 2:10 a.m.

Police are looking for 19-year-olds Andrew Davon Allen and Craig Wilson. Allen is 5-feet-8 inches tall and 150 pounds with brown eyes, black hair and medium complexion. Wilson is 6-feet-2 inches tall and 140 pounds with brown eyes, black hair and dark complexion.

Police also are looking for a  a black or dark blue 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK 320 coupe with D.C. license plates EF7810.

Most of the victims -- seven men and six women -- were shot in their extremities and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, though one victim was said to be in critical condition. One victim was a 17-year-old; the rest are adults.

The most serious injury was a man who was shot in the back, News4’s Megan McGrath reported. Some victims may have been injured by glass from a bus shelter that was shattered by gun shots.

Authorities have not ruled out the possibility that some people in the crowd fired back at the drivers, McGrath reported.
