Twelve of the victims who went to hospitals after Monday's drive-by shooting have been released, while a 13th victim remained in critical but stable condition Tuesday, D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said.

The victims sustained gunshot injuries when shots were fired into a crowd that was outside Tyler House, a low-income apartment complex about two blocks from the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro station. Police have released surveillance video of two vehicles of interest, at least one of which had occupants that fired into the group.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said Monday that most of the gunshot wounds were to victims' legs, feet and hands, but one person was shot in the back. Some of the victims had been taken to hospitals by ambulance, and some went to hospitals on their own, Crump said Tuesday.
