WASHINGTON, DC – D.C. police opened fire late Sunday night on three people suspected of a home invasion in the Brookland neighborhood of Northeast Washington, WRC-TV (Channel 4) reported. One person was fatally wounded and another was shot and injured.
Police were sent to the 1000 block of Irving Street NE shortly before 11 p.m. to investigate a possible burglary. Channel 4 said three suspected burglars ran from the rear of the residence, and allegedly opened fire on police, who shot back.
One of the three was killed, one was wounded and the third was taken into custody, WRC said.
The incident occurred about one half mile southeast of the Catholic University campus and Brookland stop on the Metro Red line. WRC said police are investigating whether the suspects are connected to any other recent burglaries in the areas.
