Source says the five wounded victims of the shooting were expected to survive their injuries.

One person was killed and five others wounded on Thursday in a shooting on the streets of Washington, DC, not far from the White House, police said.

It was not immediately clear if a suspect had been taken into custody in the incident, but a law enforcement source told Reuters it was not considered an “active shooter” situation.

The source said the five wounded victims of the shooting were expected to survive their injuries.

The gunfire erupted in the Columbia Heights neighborhood, about two (three km) from the White House on Thursday night.
