A man was found dead in an overturned SUV riddled with bullet holes early Friday in Northeast D.C. after someone opened fire from another vehicle, police said.

A suspect pulled up next to the victim and began shooting on an off-ramp to Kenilworth Avenue NE about midnight, then fled, police said. A 911 caller reported the shooting.

The victim crashed, and their vehicle flipped over, police said. Photos show the damaged SUV on its roof.

Officers responded to DC-295 near Kenilworth Avenue and Benning Road, police said.

A man was found inside the vehicle that was upside down on a service road, police said. They did not appear to have any gunshot wounds, police said.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will investigate their cause of death.

The investigation shut down DC-295 southbound lanes and a service road, but traffic is flowing again.
