D.C. police now say 13 people were injured in a drive-by shooting in northwest Washington.

Police also say that one of the victims was in critical condition Monday afternoon. The other dozen victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police have made no arrests, and detectives are working to establish a motive. Police initially reported that 11 people had been shot.

The shooting occurred around 2:10 a.m. in the area of New York Avenue and North Capitol Street. Police Chief Cathy Lanier says gunmen in a speeding car opened fire on a crowd standing outside an apartment building. Lanier says a nightclub across the street had let out about 15 minutes earlier.
