A 15-year-old from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was arrested on Sunday in connection to a double shooting that took place near the Smithsonian National Zoo’s popular ZooLights attraction in November.
D.C. police said the teen, who has not been identified due to his status as a minor, walked up to two people on the 2800 block of Connecticut Avenue NW around 8 p.m. on Nov. 30, pulled out a handgun and shot both of them before fleeing the scene.
The shooting caused the National Zoo to close down early.
The victims were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. They are expected to recover.
The teen has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.
