By Stephanie Kaye

Four people are dead and five others injured after what police say was a drive-by shooting on South Capital street in Southeast D.C.

A man who says he is the grandfather of one of the shooting victims says this drive-by was unusual, being on a main street during the early evening. His grandson Graham, he says, was killed while hanging out with friends after having come back from a funeral.

Meanwhile, another man who would only give his name as "Anthony," worried that his cousin may have also been involved.

"All I can do is pray for him," he says. "But other than that, if he was one of the ones that was shot, hopefully he'll make it."

Police made three arrests in relation to the shootings and say they have a weapon that may have been used.
