WASHINGTON - A teenager who was shot in Southeast Monday afternoon showed up at a local hospital in need of care.
According to D.C. police, the 13-year-old was shot in the 2200 block of 14th Street Southeast just after 2:00 p.m.
Police said they arrived at the scene but could not locate a victim. The teenage boy later arrived at the hospital conscious and breathing.
FOX 5 spoke to a man who heard the gunshots being fired.
"Bow! Bow! Bow! a whole lotta shots," the man said. "In a short time, all you hear is about 12 shots. His grandmother called me and told me that her grandson was shot … The shooting in this city needs to stop. For a little kid to get shot, I don't like it."
D.C. police have released a surveillance photo of a silver sedan they believe may be connected to the shooting.
