A man wanted in a shooting in Chinatown last month has been caught on video, according to authorities.

The assault occurred on the 600 block of H Street NW about 2:45 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 10.

Video police distributed today in connection with the crime shows a man with a bandana walking on a sidewalk. It wasn’t immediately clear what role he may have played in the shooting.

Later in surveillance footage from the street, about three people ran away from a group of about three other individuals, who had their right arms outstretched. At least two people fell down and two cars drove off during the encounter.

The video also shows two people getting into a white car, which authorities are seeking, too.

Cops heard several gunshots before finding a man struck by gunfire. He was brought to a local hospital for treatment.

Police today also released surveillance footage of three people sought in an armed robbery near Union Market last month.

The crime happened on the 500 block of Morse Street NE about 3 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 26.

The video shows three people in jackets knocking a man down on the street. One of three people then held a gun out while the two other people punched the man in his face and appeared to take items from his pockets.

The trio eventually jumped into a black car as the man laid on the ground without moving.

Anyone who can identify these individuals or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s TEXT TIP LINE at 50411
