VIDEO: Officer Hit by Car, 4 People Shot in Northwest DC
Four men were shot at the intersection of North Capitol Street and New York Avenue NW in Washington DC Wednesday afternoon and an officer on a bicycle was struck by a car near the scene, police say.
D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said a gunman at first opened fire on one man, shooting him multiple times before shooting three additional men outside the Big Ben liquor store on New York Ave. The suspect then ran away and is still at large, Lanier said.
A bike officer was struck by a car while trying to cross North Capitol St. to respond to the shooting, Lanier said. He is in good condition and is expected to be OK, Lanier said.
The men who were shot have been taken to a hospital and are expected to survive, Lanier said.
Police believe the shooting was not random, reports WRC-TV.
