Police arrested a suspect in a Northeast D.C. shooting after a brief car chase that ended when the man crashed in Alexandria, police said.

The 39-year-old suspect shot another man in the leg near 60th and Dix streets at about 1:30 a.m., police said.

The suspect then fled in a BMW before crashing near Route 1 and I-495. A weapon was recovered from the man, police said.

The shooting victim was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

60th and Dix streets NE to Alexandria VA. The most direct route would be Southern Ave to South Capital St to Indian Highway (router 210) to I-495 across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge to Route 1. Not exactly a brief chase.
