A suspect has been arrested in connection to the late-night shooting at the Cuban Embassy in Washington, D.C.
The U.S. secret service took the man into custody in the earlier hours of April 30th. He was charged with being in possession of an unregistered firearm, unregistered ammunition, assault with intent to kill and possession of a high capacity magazine.
The shooting was reported around 2:10 a.m. outside the Embassy. The neighborhood residents woke up hearing gunshots and screams but according to the police, no one was injured. Witnesses claim that the preparator fired at least 30 shots, ABC’s Sam Sweeney tweeted.
A red Nissan Pathfinder parked next to the Embassy building is believed to be the suspect’s vehicle. A white face mask and what appeared to be a decorative American flag was found inside it, The Washington Post reports.
The investigation continues.
