Four Teens Shot on Edgewood Playground

From NBC4:
The search continues for the person or persons responsible for shooting four teenagers on a northeast Washington playground Sunday night.

Police said the shooting happened about 8:30 p.m. on a playground near the Edgewood Terrace apartments in the 600 block of Edgewood Street, NE.

Police said a 15-year-old boy was shot in the back and transported to the hospital in serious condition. The other three victims are between 18 and 19 years of age and were wounded in their arms and legs.

Authorities said all four victims are expected to survive.

D.C. police Inspector James Crane told News4, "Several people were seen running, including the victims. We're trying to interview the witnesses and the victims to find out who was where and at what point in time so we can get a clear picture of what was going on."

Investigators said they are looking for at least one person who is described as a black male with light complexion, about 6 feet tall with a short haircut and wearing blue jeans.
