Two people were killed and another was hospitalized Sunday afternoon in a shooting near Northwest D.C.’s Shaw neighborhood.
D.C. police said the shots rang out around 3:30 p.m. in the 100 block of Q Street NW, where police found two men unconscious and not breathing.
Those men were taken to a hospital and a third man walked into a nearby hospital with injuries from the same shooting.
A spokesperson for D.C. police said the two unconscious men were in “grave condition” at the hospital. Shortly afterward, the two men were pronounced dead.
Police said they’re looking for a silver Chevy Cobalt with tinted windows and a Maryland license plate. Police described the shooter as a man wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and Timberland boots.

“What I see and what I hear is a community that’s just totally fed up,” Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie told WTOP’s news partners at NBC Washington at the scene of the shooting. “They are at their wit’s end. They are hearing the sounds of gunshots, seeing the yellow tape almost every other night.”
The shooting comes three days after another shooting in Northwest D.C. Two people were wounded in a shooting Thursday night in Logan Circle that sent nearby diners and pedestrians scrambling for cover.
