The suspect’s vehicle was described as a gray two-door Maserati. The suspect is wanted on suspicion of assault with a dangerous weapon.
Police believe the shooting was the result of a road rage incident, the Washington Post reports. Police said the woman attempted to change lanes in front of the two-door Maserati.
The Maserati driver “became angry and exited his vehicle,” police said, and video shows him walking up to the woman’s vehicle and shooting at the car as it drives away. The victim struck another car and stopped at the intersection of Kenilworth and Eastern, the Post reports.
The woman was struck by gunfire in her vehicle, and a child inside the car sustained minor cuts from shrapnel, police said.
Video then shows the suspect firing at a vehicle behind the Maserati before he gets in and drives away. No other injuries were reported.
Anyone who can identify this suspect or vehicle or has knowledge of this incident is asked to contact the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia at (202) 727-9099 or text a tip to 50411. Police are offering a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for a violent crime committed in the District of Columbia.
