D.C. Police have released a video showing what they call "persons of interest" in a fatal stabbing that took place earlier this week.

40-year-old Raasheem Jamal Rich, of Northeast, was stabbed Thursday afternoon in the 2800 block of Alabama Avenue, Southeast. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

At the time, police told News4's Jackie Bensen that Rich was stabbed after an argument at a liquor store. Authorities also said that the suspects fled the scene on foot, but left behind a blue minivan that was taken away as evidence.

The murder was the first in the District of Columbia in 2013.

Anyone with information about the case, including knowledge of the people shown in the video, is asked to call (202) 727-9099. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
