Sniper Opens Fire in DC, Leaving Multiple Victims

( – On April 22, a shooter injured four people before taking his own life in Washington, D.C. Three adults and one child suffered injuries outside the Edmund Burke School at Connecticut Avenue and Van Ness Street. The gunman was the only fatality; he took his own life.

Reports first came in around 3:20 p.m. just as the school dismissed for the day. Shots began coming from the fifth floor of an apartment building across the street. The sniper appeared to shoot randomly at people in the area.

Police had named Raymond Spencer as a person of interest. According to the Washington Post, at 3:24 p.m., Spencer posted on 4chan, “Dear God please forgive me.” At 3:30 p.m., he wrote that law enforcement was searching in the wrong area within the building. At 3:36 p.m., he said he was waiting for the police to get him. He also updated the school’s Wikipedia page around 4:00 p.m., noting a gunman opened fire there on April 22.

Despite the man’s posts, officials later said they were no longer looking for Spencer. However, they haven’t yet released the name of the shooter. When officers entered the shooter’s apartment, they found six guns, ammunition, and a tripod. Authorities say the motive remains unclear, but they are continuing to investigate.
