News4’s Mark Segraves was at a red light on South Capitol Street outside Nationals Park when he saw a man running and a black SUV driving away from the scene with temporary tags.
It sped into the flow of traffic on South Capitol Street after bursting out of First Street and making some extremely aggressive gestures. I dived down when the car drove directly past my car because I was so sure it was connected to the shooting, Segraves recalled.
If the car in the video is really the one in question, police have not confirmed this. No gunfire is happening right now. The event is being looked into by police as a homicide.
