Police spokesman Officer Paul Metcalf says the incident occurred just before 4:45 p.m. near the corner of Cedar and High Streets SE. That's next to the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site.

He says all three of the victims were conscious and breathing as they were taken to a hospital.

Some of the victims appear to have sought treatment at a nearby firehouse.

Metcalf says investigators are trying to determine what happened at the crime scene and the motive for the shooting.
