‘Moechella’ Washington, DC, June 19 shooting: 1 dead, 3 injured

A 15-year-old was killed and three people, including a police officer, were shot Sunday afternoon amid a street event in Washington, DC, which police called “prohibited”.

Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee told reporters Sunday night that several hundred people gathered for the June 19 advocacy and music festival called “Moechella,” repeatedly calling it a ‘”unauthorized event”.

Contee said police moved in to break up the event after a fight and another incident resulted in several people being trampled and injured. A firearm was recovered after the second incident.

Later, shots were fired among the crowd, police said.

Four people were killed, including a policeman and a minor. Three adult victims, including the officer, were in local hospitals recovering and a 15-year-old boy died, Contee said.
