4 men shot at Southeast D.C. bus stop; girl injured


WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Four men were shot at a crowded bus shelter on Monday evening when a gunman shot into it four to six times while people were waiting during rush hour, police said.

The shooting happened at 2300 Pennylsvania Avenue in D.C. All of the men are conscious and breathing. A young girl was also injured, but police think she was hit by flying glass when the shelter was struck by bullets.

The gunshot victims were found in different locations after the shooting, but police believe that's because they ran after the gunman opened fire.

MPD has posted a lookout for a 6-foot black male with shoulder length dreadlocks who was wearing a gray shirt and blue pants. He was last seen heading on foot toward Minnesota Avenue.

ABC7's Sam Ford reports live from the scene shortly after the shootings:
