WASHINGTON (AP/WTOP) — Police in Washington, D.C. have arrested five people they say opened fire on officers around midnight on Tuesday.

According to WTOP, when officers got to the scene people inside an SUV started shooting at them. Police reportedly returned fire. The suspects refused to come out, but after 30 minutes three women and two men surrendered.

No injuries are reported. The latest incident follows protests over police killings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota and the Dallas police shootings.

We are working to get more information.
