There's been an arrest in a drive-by shooting that injured 13 people standing outside an apartment building in northwest.

A D.C. Police fugitive task force arrested 19-year-old Craig Wilson of southeast on Friday. He's been charged in a warrant with assault with intent to kill.

Wilson was one of two young men police wanted to question in the shooting, which happened shortly after 2 a.m. last Monday. Police say shots were fired from at least one car that sped by a crowd of people standing outside an apartment complex in northwest. A nearby nightclub had just closed for the night.

Police have also found the Mercedes coupe they were looking for in connection with the shooting. They're still looking for 19-year-old Andrew Allen for questioning.
