D.C. Police are on the hunt for a man who opened fire at a Northeast nightclub, sending five people to the hospital.

It happened shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday at the D.C. Soundstage at 2403 Benning Road.

Police tell News4 a man walked up to the door of the club and started shooting. The suspect in the case is described only as a large man wearing a skull cap.

Responders initially transported two men and two women from the scene. A fifth victim, a man, was found hiding at the back of the building. Three of the victims were shot in the leg, while one of the male victims was shot in the back and one of the female victims was shot in the chest.

On Saturday night, officers temporarily closed D.C. Soundstage and did not reveal when or if it would be re-opened.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact D.C. Police.
