WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Two men suffered life-threatening injuries and a third was seriously hurt after shootings in what police described as a drug deal gone bad.
DC Police were dispatched at 7:38 p.m. and found two of the shooting victims in the 2100 block of 8th Street near V Street. Another had made his way around the corner and was found at a McDonalds restaurant on Georgia Avenue.
Sources close to the investigation say two men agreed to buy drugs from two sellers and apparently began the transaction in a large S-U-V. It appears one man, presumed to be the buyer, shot the two sellers while in the S-U-V. His fellow buyer was shot in the altercation, as well.
The three victims all carried Maryland IDs. The shooter remains at large.
