Two adult males are conscious and breathing after a shooting on a busy street in Northwest Washington, DC, on Thursday evening, officials said.

A call came in around 8:20 p.m. local time, a DC Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson told Insider. The case is currently under investigation.

Reports of multiple gunshots in the area of 14th and Riggs St. sent several people running from restaurants, according to a tweet from HuffPost reporter Igor Bobic.

According to Bobic, who posted photos from the scene, a witness said they saw a person in a black sedan shooting out on to the 14th street sidewalk.

About an hour after the shooting, police said they're looking for a male wearing a lime green or yellow hooded sweater fleeing in an older black Honda Civic with DC license tags.

Video taken by CNN reporter Jim Acosta and shared on Twitter showed several people running down the street after a series of popping sounds and sirens. Acosta tweeted that the shooting was near Le Diplomate, a popular restaurant with journalists.
