Boy killed, three wounded in shooting after Washington concert

WASHINGTON, 21 June 2022, (TON): The local police chief said “a 15-year-old boy was killed and three other people, including a police officer, were wounded in a shooting after a concert in Washington Sunday night.”

The shooting was preceded by two other incidents which caused panic at the unpermitted ‘Moechella’ concert celebrating Juneteenth, with several people injured while running away, DC police chief Robert Contee told reporters.

Contee said “Police then shut down the sidewalk concert on safety grounds but shortly afterwards, despite a heavy police presence, the shooting occurred nearby in which the boy was killed.”

He said “unfortunately things like this can happen when you have the wrong mix of people, or people who introduce firearms into a situation.”
