Police said the two suspects approached the victim around 1:40 a.m. before shooting the victim and taking their vehicle. One suspect fled in the stolen car, and another left in a different car. The victim was treated at a nearby hospital for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

The stolen car is a 2010 grey Chevrolet Impala that was last seen with a Virginia temporary registration tag.

The images of the suspects and involved vehicles were captured by a nearby surveillance camera.

Police ask that anyone with any information call (202) 727-9099 or text the tip line at 50411.
