Authorities say a gunman shot three people in Southeast D.C. on Sunday after pulling up in a car, firing rounds, then driving away.

Officers said the shootings took place around 10 p.m. in the 3300 block of 10th Place, near the Oak Hill Apartments.

According to police, a male suspect driving a white SUV fired rounds at a crowd from inside the car. Gunfire struck two women and one male. According to investigators, roughly 30 shots were fired, and the gunman may have been using an assault weapon.

All victims were sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect was last seen escaping on Wheeler Road, according to authorities. According to investigators, it is unclear if the gunshot was random or targeted.

According to sources, a special police officer drew her weapon during the shooting but was unable to fire because the suspect turned and fired bullets into her vehicle. FOX 5’s Melanie Alniwck reported the suspect may have driven into the area through a broken security gate.
