The D.C. police union criticized elected officials who “won’t let us do our jobs” in the wake of a shooting that left three people wounded outside a Washington Nationals baseball game.

“Welcome to Washington, D.C. Where violent crime permeates everything,” the union tweeted, with footage showing crowds rushing to exit Nationals Park.

D.C. police said Sunday they are seeking a vehicle caught on surveillance video fleeing the scene.

Detectives from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s First District are appealing to the public for information about a gray Toyota Corolla with a missing hubcap on the rear driver’s side wheel and dark tinted windows. Authorities said the vehicle was captured on a nearby surveillance camera fleeing the shooting that broke out around 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the 1300 block of South Capitol Street, Southwest.

The vehicle, believed to be displaying a Virginia temporary tag, is being sought “in reference to an assault with a dangerous weapon offense,” police said. As with other violent crimes, the department is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who provides information leading to an arrest and conviction.
