WASHINGTON (WJLA/AP) - D.C. police said at least 13 people were shot, one fatally, in Washington from Friday night through Sunday morning.

The deadly shooting happened around 11 p.m. on Friday when Dondre Keenen Dyer, 23, was slain in the Petworth neighborhood of Northwest D.C.

Two mass shooting incidents accounted for ten of the dozen injured, police said.

Six people (three men and three women) were shot and wounded in the unit block of N St. SW on Sunday morning, while three men and a child were injured around midnight on Friday in the Bloomingdale neighborhood in northeast Washington.

The remaining shooting cases involved a carjacking in which a man was shot and wounded about 2:45 a.m. Sunday in the 2300 block of Hartford Street SE, and another solo-shooting in Southeast about 1 a.m. Saturday in the 2000 block of Savannah Terrace.

None of the wounded dozen people appeared to have suffered life-threatening injuries.

No arrests were reported in any of the incidents, although police said they were searching for two men in a light-colored station wagon in connection with the Bloomingdale shooting.
