DC police seek U-Haul in connection with shooting that wounded 2 women

WASHINGTON — Two women standing in front of a Chinese carryout in Southeast D.C. late Thursday night were injured in a shooting involving a U-Haul truck.

The women were in front of the carryout at 306 Southern Avenue, near the border with Maryland, when the U-Haul truck drove past at about 11:15 p.m. and someone inside began shooting, according to the police report.

A spokesperson for D.C. police said two women were shot but were conscious and breathing when law enforcement responded.

Three witnesses saw the shooting and reported the U-Haul truck fled northbound on Southern Avenue after the shooting, according to the police report.

Police said they are continuing to investigate the shooting.
