A teenager was killed and three others, including a police officer, were injured in a shooting in Washington, D.C., on Sunday night.
Four people were shot, according to the DCPD, near 14th and U Street Northwest. A 15-year-old boy was killed in the attack. They have been taken to nearby hospitals where they and the officer are doing well.
More than 100 police officers were dispatched to the scene of a fatal shooting linked to an unpermitted Moechella event. When the gunfire broke out, police decided it was unsafe and began to shut it down after multiple incidents occurred during the gathering.
It only takes one person to bring the situation to its knees when there are large gatherings in a densely populated area.” In this case, unfortunately, a 15-year-old was killed. New York City’s Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee expressed his deepest condolences to the family of the 15-year-old victim and to those who were injured in the shootings.
Several guns were found in the area, including one that belonged to one of the shooting victims, according to Chief Contee. The gun that was used to kill the four people has yet to be found, and police believe there was no gunfight.
Illegal guns in the hands of those who shouldn’t have them create an unsafe environment for those who simply want to take advantage of the beautiful weather, to celebrate Father’s Day with their loved ones, and simply want to take in the sights of our city. Surely this is unacceptable. Chief Contee went on to say, “I think as we continue to go through this investigation and we peel back the layers to really see what happened, we as a city need to make sure individuals are held accountable for their actions.
Although investigators are unsure as to why this incident occurred, they do know that they want to hold the perpetrators accountable.
Authorities are still deciding whether to take legal action against Moechella’s organizers at this time.
On social media, DC Police said they were looking for a man 5’4” tall with curly hair and wearing all black clothing in connection with the shooting at the time of the initial investigation. Everyone is urged to call 911 immediately if they see someone who looks like the person in the description.
