At least three people were wounded in a shooting Friday in the U.S. capital, Washington, D.C., police said as they cordoned off a neighborhood and asked residents to take cover.
There are at least three victims, two men and a minor, wrote on Twitter the Washington police, who have deployed a large number of people to the scene, equipped with rifles and massive bulletproof shields. A university has been placed on lockdown.
The events took place in a neighborhood in the northwest of the capital, rather well-to-do and usually quiet. Many residents were quickly evacuated from the area where many detonations sounded, according to videos shared on social networks.
