WASHINGTON (AP) Two people have been charged in connection with a drive-by shooting in southeast Washington in which four people were killed and at least five others wounded.

Twenty-year-old Nathaniel Carter and 26-year-old Orlando Simms were to be arraigned Wednesday at 4 p.m. A spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office did not immediately know what the charges were.

Police said Tuesday that they had arrested three people and it is unclear if there will be more charges.

The shooting occurred at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. After a gunman sprayed bullets into a crowd, the vehicle led police on a chase into neighboring Maryland. The D.C. council member who represents the area said a dispute between neighborhood "crews" led to the violence.
