Woman flees from DC shootout with child in arms (VIDEO)

- Dramatic video shows a woman running for her life with a child in her arms as a shootout rages in Southeast D.C.

DC police released the video on Thursday of the incident that happened in the 3600 block of 22nd Street, SE the evening of July 31.

The video shows the woman sprinting with the child in her arms and falling as two men open fire right next to her.

Investigators said the two suspects shot a man who was later treated for non-life threatening injuries.
