uneteenth Event In DC Turns Into A Mass Shooting, 4 Shot, 15 Year Old Killed
D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee says that four people, including a 15-year-old male, two adult civilians and a police officer, were shot at the intersection of 14th and U Streets in Northwest. The teenager has died. The shooting was first reported to WTOP after 8 p.m. in the area near a “Moechella” event — a downtown Juneteenth celebration not approved by D.C. officials. A fight broke out, causing people to disperse shortly before officers shut the event down. Contee said weapons were obtained in the unpermitted event area just before the shooting took place.
