WASHINGTON DC, DC – Agents with the Metropolitan Police Department are tracing the identity of a person they believe is linked to a shooting in northwestern DC on Sunday night

Police were called to the 700 block of H. Street Northwest at approximately 6:30 p.m. for reports of gunfire in Chinatown near Capital One Arena.
