One person was killed and five others wounded on Thursday (Friday morning IST) in a shooting that happened on the streets of Washington DC in USA, not far from the White House, police told news agency Reuters.Whether a suspect has been taken into custody is still not clear in the incident, however, a law enforcement source told Reuters it was not considered an “active shooter” situation.

The source claimed the five wounded victims of the shooting were expected to survive their injuries.

The gunfire erupted right outside the courtyard along 1300 block of Columbia Road, about two-three km from the White House on Thursday night, ABC 7 news reported, adding there was a woman among those injured.

ABC affiliate WJLA-TV posted images on Twitter of ambulances carrying victims from the scene and said there had been a “massive” police response at the intersection of 14th Street and Columbia Road.
