D.C. police said 23-year-old Raymond Spencer was identified from a video he posted on social media with the caption “school shooting,” which showed the shooting being carried out from a window. a high rise apartment.

Reuters news agency quoted Police Chief Robert Contee as saying the video “looks very authentic”, but it is not clear if the footage was broadcast live or posted later.

A few hours earlier, police released a photo of Spencer, saying they were looking for him. Spencer committed suicide after the police stormed his apartment.

Police said Spencer had placed the gun on a tripod used for sniper shooting. Mr. Contee said the victims were shot randomly as they were walking on the street.

Three victims were taken to hospital, including a 54-year-old man and a woman in her 30s with serious injuries, and a 12-year-old girl with an arm injury. The fourth victim, a 60-year-old woman, was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Witnesses told Reuters they heard multiple gunshots in the Van Ness neighborhood in northwest Washington DC, near Edmund Burke Private School, just before school was dismissed.
