Two teenagers wanted on murder charges in Washington, D.C., are believed to be in Columbia, and federal authorities consider them to be armed and dangerous.

Antonio "Squirt" Barnes, 19, and Earl "E" Jackson, 18, are wanted on second-degree murder charges for an Oct. 13, 2009, shooting in the Clay Terrace neighborhood in northeast Washington. At around 3:55 p.m., officers helping with the dismissal of students from a nearby school heard gunshots in the neighborhood, according to a bulletin issued by the U.S. Marshals Service. Officers found two people who had been killed by gunshots and numerous people who had been injured in the gunfire, the bulletin said.

Washington's Metropolitan Police Department investigation led to the July 30 arrest warrants for Barnes and Jackson, who had fled the city.

Barnes is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds. He has tattoos on both arms and both hands.

Jackson is 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 115 pounds.
