A person was killed and four others were injured in a shooting in Washington D.C., media agencies reported on Thursday.
Authorities said that five persons were hit by gun bullets, and all of them were transported to the hospital.
“MPD has located four adult female shooting victims related to this incident at the Days Inn,” the police department tweeted before announcing the death of one of the victims.
The authorities were reported about the incident in the afternoon, and they were deployed at the scene shortly.
Later on, the deployed forces heard the sounds of the gun attack at a party inside a hotel, and it could be linked to a drug authority.
The scene cordoned for several hours and have opened an investigation.
Police commander Duncan Bedlion told reporters that MPD received “complaints from the community” about the hotel.
“We receive complaints related to drug activity and that’s something we actively work to address with the community,” he continued.
