WASHINGTON — Authorities say three people were shot in a drive-by shooting outside a Metro station in Washington.

The Metropolitan Police Department says in a news release that the victims were standing outside the Shaw-Howard University station on Saturday night when four people in a car pulled up and fired shots at the men.

The three men were taken to local hospitals with what police say are non-life-threatening injuries.

A nearby surveillance camera captured an image of the vehicle, described as a black 2016 Mazda Hatchback with a New York license plate. No arrests have been made, and police have not released any names of suspects.
