Teen Killed, 3 Others Injured At Music Event Celebrating Juneteenth In D.C.

A 15-year-old boy was shot dead and three adults, including a police officer, were wounded in the shooting near 14th and U Streets NW in Washington D.C. after a musical event lacking a permit erupted into chaos on Sunday night, police said. The injured officer and the other adults were recovering at hospitals, Metropolitan Police Chief Robert J. Contee III told reporters. Social media had promoted a free music event known as Moechella and several hundred people were gathering in the area around 6 p.m., Contee said. Police arrived to assist the crowd and people stayed mostly to the sidewalks as music played from a truck, he said. But then a fight broke out, and then an incident caused people to scatter, Contee said.
