An off-duty police officer was involved in a shooting Friday morning that injured three people.
According to officials, Officer Kenneth Furr was in an altercation at a Northeast CVS with five other people about 90 minutes before the shooting occurred.
Shots were fired at a car carrying those individuals about 5:25 a.m. in the 100 block of Pierce Street Northwest, hitting one person. Two additional people were injured in the incident, although it is unclear how they were hurt. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening.
Furr was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated and assault with a dangerous weapon.
Some reports identify the injured as transgendered people. Earlier this summer, two transgendered people were attacked in Northeast and one of them died from the attack.
Furr, a 20-year- veteran of the Metropolitan Police Department, is expected to appear in court as early as Saturday. It is unclear if the weapon used in the shooting was his service weapon. Police are continuing their investigation.
