WASHINGTON - Police have released surveillance video of a person of interest involved in a shooting that wounded a 10-year-old boy in Southeast D.C.
D.C. police say officers responded to the 2300 block of Hartford Street at around 10:05 p.m. Monday for the report of a shooting. Once they arrived, officers located David Gross Jr. suffering from a gunshot wound.
The victim’s mother told FOX 5 that her son and his friend were walking a dog Monday night when he was shot. She said her son was wounded in the stomach.
The boy was transported to the hospital for the treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, police say.
In the surveillance video, the person of interest wearing what appears to be a white shirt is seen walking on a sidewalk and a small dirt path up to a staircase at the apartment complex.
Gross’ mother said David will be entering the fifth grade at Imagine Hope Community Charter School in Northeast D.C.
