WASHINGTON (AP) — Police have identified a man who was shot and killed near the Howard University campus in Northwest Washington.

Forty-three-year-old Robert Foster Jr. of Washington was one of four people shot near the route of the Caribbean Carnival parade late Saturday afternoon.

Two other men and a woman were shot and survived. The parade had largely passed, but many people remained near the route when gunfire sent people fleeing.

Police have said the shooting apparently stemmed from a neighborhood dispute and was not connected to the parade or the university. Police have not identified any suspects or revealed a possible motive.

Mayor Vincent Gray went to the shooting scene Saturday night.
