D.C. Police Identify Two Persons Of Interest In North Capitol Street Shooting

D.C. police are looking for two 19-year-old men they call persons of interest in a drive-by shooting that injured 13 people, reports the Associated Press.

Police are seeking to question Andrew Allen and Craig Wilson about the shooting early Monday morning outside an apartment building in northwest Washington. Someone fired into a crowd standing outside the building shortly after 2 a.m. A nearby nightclub had closed for the night just minutes earlier.

Police are also looking for a black 1999 Mercedes CLK 320 coupe. The car has District of Columbia tags EF7810, according to D.C. Police.

Surveillance video shows two cars speeding past a crowd of people standing outside the building, with shots fired from at least one of the vehicles.

One man was critically injured. Police said the rest of the injuries were minor.
