D.C. police are looking for two men who apparently grew thirsty after using a shotgun in an armed robbery in Northeast Washington.

Surveillance cameras caught the men shortly after the robbery of an individual around midnight Monday in the 900 block of Franklin Street NE.

The men are seen in the video taking large gulps from a bottle and peeking into a convenience store window.

Police consider the two men to be persons of interest in the crime. The first man is described as a black male, in his 20s, about 5-feet-10 with a slim build. He was wearing a full black ski mask, black glovers, black jacket and black pants, and armed with a shotgun.

The second man was described as a black male, 18 to 20 years old, 5-feet-8 and a skinny build. He was wearing a black ski mask, black gloves and black pants.

Anyone with information that can help identify the men is asked to call police at (202) 727-9099. D.C. police are offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to a conviction.
