Investigators believe a crashed car they found nearby near the intersection of Forida Avenue NW and North Capitol Street NW may have been used as a getaway car. 

On Monday, police arrested two people after more than 20 shots were fired in the same area about 5 p.m. No one was injured in the gunfire.
