Restlessness follows Washington gunshots which erupted on Thursday in a Washington, D.C., neighborhood recognized for its eateries, injuring two men, one of whom authorities believe was a passerby.
Around 8:20 p.m., gunfire occurred. Diners were forced to evacuate the vicinity of 14th Street NW and Riggs Street NW.
Chief Robert Contee of the Metropolitan Police Department described the shooting as deplorable and said that the shooting took place in a busy area.
According to Contee, he said
The Washington gunshots took place on the same day that the Justice Department proclaimed the establishment of strike forces to tackle firearm trafficking in five cities and regions, including Washington, D.C. The objective, according to officials, is to hinder gun trafficking channels that send guns to these communities.
The two victims injured on Thursday had non-life-threatening injuries and were recuperating in hospitals, according to officials.
According to Contee, one individual was assumed to be the target, while the other could have been an entirely innocent bystander. Two people in hooded sweatshirts running to a parked black automobile were captured on film by police. They were labeled as suspects by authorities.
