Two men were shot Monday night in D.C.'s busy U Street Corridor, police say.

The shooting happened about 6:30 p.m. at 14th and V streets NW.

"It was just a quick, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop. It was either four or five, but just loud pops," said Aryan Nourazar, who heard the gunfire.

Witnesses told News4 they saw people run into Busboys and Poets to escape the chaos.

"They were crying. Some people were on the phone calling 911 and saying, ‘Someone got shot! Someone got shot!’" Brian Robinson said.

Medics transported the two men to a hospital. They were both conscious and breathing, police said.

Authorities found a gun in the intersection.
