Washington, D.C.(Wednesday, May 19, 2021) – DC police continue to search for a gunman who opened fire Tuesday evening on a family outside their Logan Circle home in the 15-hundred block of 10th Street, NW.

The mother and her young child, a 4-year-old boy.  Both are said to be in critical condition at a local hospital.  Police Chief Robert Contee described the suspect as a male wearing dark clothing and a mask who fled on foot.  Contee said the shooting involved a minor dispute between the mother and the suspect over a street scooter. The two apparently did not know each other.  Chief Contee had this message for the gunman.  “The Metropolitan Police Department is coming and that he should be ashamed of himself for what he did to this family.”
