The unknown suspect or suspects are reportedly still at large.

One neighbor said she went to her porch after hearing gunshots and spotted a male running away from the scene behind homes to a waiting black vehicle that drove off when he got in, the Takoma News Tribune reported.

“I was working from home and it was so loud that my person on the phone was like, ‘Is everything okay?’,” the eyewitness recalled.

A second neighbor reported hearing six or seven gunshots, according to the publication.

Anyone with information regarding the crime is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
