Four people were taken to a hospital, two with gunshot wounds, after an exchange of gunfire Friday on Interstate 295 at the Suitland Parkway in D.C.
D.C. police said they got several calls around 10:19 a.m. reporting a shooting in that area.
Initial investigation found that a suspect traveling in a vehicle fired into another vehicle that was occupied by four people.
The driver of the vehicle that was shot at and a passenger were shot, causing the vehicle to leave the road and crash into a barrier. Both were taken to the hospital — one by helicopter and the other by ambulance.
The two other passengers got minor injuries as a result of the crash and were also taken to the hospital.
The suspect vehicle fled the scene following the incident.
Drivers weren’t able to access southbound I-295 from the outbound 11th Street or Sousa bridges, but lane closures were lifted Friday afternoon.
Anyone with information on what happened should call D.C. police at 202-727-9099.
