D.C. Police searching for person of interest in recent Elvans Road shooting

D.C. police have identified a person of interest in the Anacostia shooting that killed 68-year- old Vivian Marrow on Monday morning.

This development comes a day after Interim Police Chief Peter Newsham held a press conference urging the community members to come forward with information pertaining to the shooting.

According to police, the suspect is a black male with a slim build who appears to be left handed.

In a video released by police, Marrow can be seen in her motorized wheelchair coming down a sidewalk while two men come running behind her. One man runs through a gate and out of the camera’s view. While the other man stops, appears to pivot back towards Marrow and proceeds to cut through a row of parked cars out to the Elvans Road. Marrow’s wheelchair is seen spinning in a circle as the video comes to a close.

Police are urging anyone who has details about the shooting to come forward.
