The family was playing outside their home near Logan Circle, at 10th and P streets NW, when a man riding a rented scooter stopped nearby. After an argument about the scooter, the man opened fire on the woman and child, according to police sources.

D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Service responded to the scene and transported the victims to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. They remain in critical condition.

Less than five years ago, the suspect was arrested for an assault and robbery in the same neighborhood as the shooting. He was accused of punching someone and stealing the victim's bike.
