Three Plead Guilty To D.C. Drive-By Shooting That Injured 13

Three men have pleaded guilty for their roles in a drive-by shooting that left 13 people injured in Northwest Washington.

Twenty-year-old Andrew D. Allen, 22-year-old Keith D. Bobb and 21-year-old Arnell L. Smith, all of Washington, have all entered the pleas in D.C. Superior Court. Each pleaded guilty to 13 counts of assault with intent to kill and other offenses.

The shooting occurred in March of last year, when gunmen in two cars opened fire on a crowd standing outside an apartment building. Prosecutors say the violence stemmed from a long conflict between rival groups.

All three are scheduled to be sentenced in October. Under the plea agreement, Allen faces 25 years in prison while Bobb and Smith face 20 years.
