WASHINGTON (ABC7) — Three residents were injured, one critically, when a fire broke out in a Northeast DC residential duplex early Sunday morning.
A two-year-old boy was tossed from a second-story window and a 14-year-old girl jumped from the window. They both have non-life-threatening injuries, according to DC Fire and EMS.
‘It looks like he tried to assassinate a couple of our police officers,’ Police Chief Peter Newsham says.
