Man with automatic rifle ‘tried to assassinate a couple of police officers’ opens fire in Washington DC – WATCH

‘It looks like he tried to assassinate a couple of our police officers,’ Police Chief Peter Newsham says.

WASHINGTON — Robert Crawford was at the Heights Center strip mall in Northeast D.C. at 4 p.m. Thursday when he heard four gunshots.

“It reverberated through the windows and it was a loud shot and so everybody immediately just crouched down,” Crawford said.

He said people were running for cover into nearby stores, and one man hid behind his truck.
