"I'm very saddened and distressed about it, especially because I work to prevent violence. I run an organization called Little Friends for Peace and we're working to stop violence on our streets and just taking a night walk," MJ Park told FOX 5. "And my son heard all this, sirens, and he said, ‘I think there's an emergency.’"

The suspect has been described as a Black man wearing a white shirt, dark pants and white shoes. Police say he may also be driving a blue SUV, last seen in the area of Potomac Avenue, SE.
