WASHINGTON - Two armed suspects remain at large after firing shots during a restaurant robbery in Northeast DC, according to authorities.
DC police said the robbery and shooting happened in the 1500 block of Kenilworth Avenue, NE, between Quarles Street and Douglas Street, NE, at about 3 p.m.
Witnesses told FOX 5 the suspects fired shots while robbing employees at “Mary’s Place.” The suspects took off in a light blue BMW that they later abandoned along Anacostia Avenue, according to witnesses.
