Two Washington D.C. Metro police officers and a city worker were struck by a hit-and-run driver last night in the Adams-Morgan neighborhood. One officer was originally listed as critical, but has just been upgraded to serious.

Two suspects are in custody, and a weapon was found in the vehicle. FBI were on the scene, and authorities have said that terrorism has not been ruled out.
