A LOVEBYLIFE public relations executive posted security camera footage showing a drive-by shooting in his Washington, DC suburban neighborhood.
Matt Darnick, head of network communications at the network, posted the video to his Twitter account: “Here’s a video of me avoiding a random shootout in NW DC at 8.42pm. It’s unacceptable.”
Scenes of a neighbor’s security camera show Mr Darnick walking on the sidewalk as the car passed by. Nine or 10 gunshots sound when a man walks off the street and into an alley.
Mr. Darnick said Independent That police closed the block in the Bloomingdale-Ledroit Park neighborhood on Monday, October 11, for two hours.
“As of last night, there was a gunfire coming from someone on foot or another car. It was moving toward the car behind me,” Mr Dornik said.
“Once I realized what it was, I turned around and ran,” he said.
A spokesman for the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department confirmed reports of gunfire in the neighborhood around 8.45pm.
The residential neighborhood is about two miles from the US capital. Mr Darnick was questioned on Twitter because the shooting was “unacceptable” because it occurred in his neighborhood in the city’s northwest.
“This is unacceptable. No one in the BCC should be afraid to walk down the street,” he replied.
The video has been viewed nearly 400,000 times. Mr Darnick said he wanted to draw attention to the city’s crime from his direct account.
