Some updates on the U Street drive-by shooting, after talking to Metropolitan Police Department officials:
In addition to a corpse, cops found a man with a gunshot wound to the shoulder inside the upended SUV near 11th and U streets NW. He was taken to the hospital with “non-life-threatening” injuries. So far, authorities know of only one bystander hurt in the incident, a Verizon employee parked in a company van near where the SUV lost control. Police said his injuries are “not serious.”
MPD is on the lookout for an old, light-colored car, possibly a Crown Victoria, that might have been used in the shooting or the getaway. Officers on the scene could give no further information about the make or model.
Nobody has yet been taken into custody.
