Some of the passing vehicles launched a daring attack, and five people in the same vehicle were shot and wounded on the way home from the funeral.
Just before noon on Friday, police were called to the scene after gunshots were heard at the bridge over the Anakossia River on Bladensburg Road, 60 miles east of Washington, DC.
Bladensburg Police Chief Tyrone Collington told a news conference that the five victims were given life support by on-site paramedics before being taken to hospital.
Collinton said authorities had yet to identify a suspect and asked a passing motorist for help. He also said he was looking for surveillance videos.
Collinton also said authorities were investigating whether the suspects attended the same funeral to identify potential motives.
“At this time, we cannot confirm if it was a street rampage,” Collinton said. “We are still working on it.”
“There was no exchange[of firefights]between the two vehicles. One vehicle was fired directly at multiple victims inside,” Corrington continued.
Edmundston police officials assisting with the investigation said they believed the shooting was an isolated incident and not an ongoing threat.
