D.C. police are searching for 14 people riding seven dirt bikes and four-wheel all terrain vehicles in connection with last week’s shooting of a 27-year-old reporter who was killed at a bus stop in Southeast Washington.
The grainy black and white video shows a procession of vehicles, many with two people aboard, speeding down a street. Police said they want to question 14 people on seven vehicles in the May 27 slaying of Charnice Milton.

Police have said the local reporter, who was killed while returning home from an assignment covering a community meeting, was shot by someone one a dirt bike, and that she was not the intended target. Her father has said the person who the gunman was aiming at grabbed her and used her as a human shield.

Anyone with information is urged to call D.C. police at 202-727-9099 or text the department’s tip line at 50411. The shooting occurred about 9:40 p.m. in the 2700 block of Good Hope Road.

I have lived in the area for less than a month and I have seen the long stream of dirt bikes and four wheelers several times. They were tearing down MLK like something out of Mad Max wearing full face masks and popping wheelies. These sightings were before the shooting happened and the police were right there watching them ride with no protest.

Initially, despite the masks, I thought this was a cool neighborhood activity and I didn't worry about the crowd of 20 or so bikers. Now, after the shooting, I get a bit on edge when I hear them tearing up my street in the middle of the night.

This could be one or two bad apples spoiling things. Either way, the group doesn't seem hard to find. I have only heard one or two bikes at a time since the shooting.
