D.C. police have released photos of two people whom they are describing as "persons of interest" in a nightclub shooting that left five people wounded.

Police are asking the public to help identify the two young males who were at the DC Soundstage club around the time of the shooting. One was described as wearing no shirt, blue jeans, black boxers and a dark skullcap. The other was wearing a black top and had his hair in braids pinned up.

At about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, a gunman went into the club in the 2400 block of Benning Road NE and began shooting, injuring four men and one women.

The suspect in this case is described as a 20-to-25-year-old black male, 5-feet-11 inches to 6 feet tall, with shoulder-length dreads and a full beard. He was possibly wearing all black clothing and armed with a large silver revolver.

If anyone with information about the case or the identity of the two males or the shooter can call police at 202-727-9099. Information may be submitted to the text tip line by text messaging 50411.
