3 Shot Near 9:30 Club

Police search for a gunman

Three people were hurt, one critically, after they were shot near the 9:30 Club in northwest Washington Wednesday night.

Police said the victims were near a white SUV at about 7:30 p.m. on 8th and V streets when another vehicle drove up and someone inside opened fire.

Officers working at the 9:30 Club heard shots fired and ran to the scene.  They said two victims were on the ground near a white Cadillac Escalade.  A third man ran to a nearby McDonald's restaurant.

One of the victims is in critical condition after being shot in the head.

D.C. Councilman Jim Graham said he believes the shooting was not random.

Police are now looking for a green car that witnesses say fled from the area shortly after the shooting.
