Video released of gunman in deadly shooting in Southeast DC

- D.C. police have released surveillance video of a gunman sought in a double shooting that resulted in the death of a Virginia man Tuesday afternoon.

In the video, a suspect in a hoodie is seen running towards Alabama Avenue in Southeast D.C. at around 3:45 p.m. firing off several rounds at two men in a BMW vehicle outside of the Today's Crab House restaurant. The gunman then fled the area towards the direction he originally was seen coming from.

Police said responding officers found the two victims suffering from several gunshot wounds a few blocks away at the intersection of Alabama Avenue and Stanton Road after they crashed their car.

Both victims were transported to the hospital where 31-year-old Antwan Jones of Arlington, Virginia, was pronounced dead. The other victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Anyone with information about the suspect or the shooting is asked to call D.C. police at 202-727-9099. Anonymous tips can be left at the department's text tip line by text message at 50411.
