2 Teens Arrested After Shots Hit Uber Car Near Capitol Hill

The passenger told News4 he was heading back from the grocery store when he heard two shots

Two teenage boys were arrested after one of them fired shots at an Uber car near Capitol Hill as the pair rode a Revel Moped, police say. The gunfire narrowly missed the car's driver

A 14-year-old and 15-year-old were arrested Sunday and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, D.C. police announced Monday. Their names were not released. 

A gunshot flew through the windshield of the Uber car, leaving the driver with injuries from the shattered glass, in the 900 block of 12th Street SE at about 6:15 p.m.

The passenger told News4 he was heading back from the grocery store when he heard two shots. Then, glass rained into the blue sedan.

The teens fled. 

A bullet hole could be seen in the windshield of the car, near the driver's seat.

Late Saturday, police said the suspects are two boys who were riding a Revel brand moped. The dockless, electric mopeds hit D.C. streets earlier this month.
