Six-year-old girl killed, five adults wounded in Washington DC shooting
[NYPOST] A 6-year-old girl was killed and five adults hurt after someone opened fire near a Popeye’s in Washington D.C., police said.

The child was pronounced dead at Sibley Memorial Hospital, said cops, prompting Metropolitan Police Department Executive Assistant Chief Ashan Benedict to plea for the public to help "bring these shooters to justice."

"There is too much gun violence still perpetuated in this city, and too many children are being harmed — innocent children — by gunfire. So, please, help the police department, our detectives, bring those people to justice and bring some closure to the families," he said in a video posted to Twitter.

The incident unfolded just after 11 p.m. Friday. Officers heard shots ring out at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE and Malcolm Avenue X SE, and arrived at the intersection to find the victims, including the child, three men and two women, Benedict said.

The adults had non-life threatening injuries. No arrests have been made.
