Police arrested five people for allegedly shooting at officers in Washington, D.C., early Tuesday, officials said. No injuries were reported.
The group allegedly fired at police to avoid arrest, not as part of a targeted attack on cops, a police official told The Washington Post.
Officers in marked police cruisers were responding to reports of gunshots just after midnight in southeast Washington, D.C., near Martin Luther King Elementary School when the cops were shot at by people inside an SUV, police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said.
Police returned fire at the suspects, who barricaded themselves in the vehicle, Sternbeck said. Officers ordered the group to come out, but they refused.
