DEVELOPING: Police arrested five people for allegedly shooting at cops in Washington, D.C., early Tuesday, officials said. No injuries were reported.
The 5 people allegedly shot at police to avoid arrest, a police official told The Washington Post.
Officers were responding to reports of gunshots just after midnight in southeast Washington, D.C., when the cops were shot at by people inside an SUV, police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said.
Police returned fire at the suspects, who barricaded themselves in the vehicle, Sternbeck said. Officers ordered the group to come out, but they refused.
After a half-hour, three women and two men in the SUV surrendered to authorities. None of the five had been publicly identified as of Tuesday morning.
