A manhunt was underway in Washington D.C. Friday morning for at least two suspects armed with an AK-style rifle after one person was killed and another five injured in the courtyard of an apartment complex located about 2 miles away from the White House.

An alert issued by D.C. Metropolitan Police said authorities are searching for two male suspects in a light-colored Nissan. While the alleged gunmen remained at large hours after the incident, authorities told Reuters there is no active shooter situation at this time.
