The driver reportedly jumped out of the vehicle and then leaped over a jersey barrier on the overpass, landing on Malcolm X Avenue.

D.C. police – who weren’t involved in the pursuit – are investigating the incident.

They say Anthony Louis of Southeast was conscious and breathing when an ambulance arrived, but he lost consciousness as they transported him, and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Parks police say the officers who were involved in the incident have been placed on administrative leave.

Three other suspects – who were in the vehicle – are facing charges in Alexandria in connection with the shots fired incident, including 41-year-old Joseph Stokes, 37-year-old Shawn Pendleton, and 37-year-old Antoine Thomas – all of D.C.
