D.C. Police are on the look out for a man who they believe broke into a house in Northeast D.C. early Saturday morning and shot the resident there.

The man is believed to have entered the house on the 4400 block of Ponds Street Northeast just before 2 a.m., according to Officer Araz Alali, a police spokesman. The suspect announced that he was robbing the house before firing multiple rounds from a handgun -- hitting the victim -- and running from the scene.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooter was described as a light-skinned black man who is five-foot-five and wearing a black mask, red jacket and blue jeans. He was carrying a red bookbag and a handgun.
