Five individuals stole computers from a Northwest D.C. elementary school on Black Friday and were captured on a video camera.

Authorities in the District are asking the public for help to solve a burglary at one of the city's elementary schools.

The Metropolitan Police Department is asking help identifying five people who stole computer equipment from a city school. Police say the burglary happened Friday at the Brightwood Elementary School in northwest Washington.

Schools were closed Friday in the city for the Thanksgiving holiday, but police say that just after 1 p.m., five people entered the school and carried off several pieces of computer equipment.

Police released a video showing the five walking down a corridor in the school, all of them wearing what appeared to be hooded sweatshirts or jackets.
