Two people are dead after a shooting in Capitol Hill Sunday night.
D.C. police are investigating the double shooting that happened in the area of 11th and D streets in Southeast D.C. around 8 p.m.
Two men were found inside a crashed SUV suffering from gunshot wounds, First District Cmdr. Tasha Bryant said at a news conference. One man died at the scene.
The other man was transported to a hospital where he later died due to his injuries, Bryant said. Neither of their identities have been released as police begin their investigation.
“We do everything that we can to keep communities and our visitors safe,” Bryant told reporters on Sunday night. “This is a tragedy and I’m so hurt, my heart is broken that I’m standing in front of you guys again talking about gun violence.”
Eastbound traffic on 11th Street between M Street and Pennsylvania Avenue has all lanes blocked due to the police investigation. Pennsylvania Avenue had been previously closed.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact the department at 202-727-9099 or by text at 50411.
