A man was killed and a bystander was hurt in a shooting Wednesday night on 14th Street outside the Franklin D. Reeves Municipal Center in Northwest, D.C.

The victims were taken to a hospital after gunfire was reported at around 9:35 p.m.

The man, who was shot in the stomach, was later pronounced dead.

The woman was shot in the leg but found conscious and breathing, authorities said. She was not the intended target of the shooting, police said.

Based on the number of shell casings found near the scene, police believe more than one gun was fired.
