DC Shooting Update : Who & Why Suspect Killed People? 1 Dead & 3 Others Injured

Several people were injured in A shooting in Washington D.C, including one police officer. One of those shots is of a teenager.
Reported to be dead, the police said, giving an update on the shooting in the area of 14th and U Street, NW.

“Three civilians – two adults and one juvenile – were shot.

One police officer was also shot. The police officer and two victims are recovering at a hospital. One victim, the juvenile, it appears is deceased at this point,” Metropolitan Police Department Chief Robert J. Contee said.

There are four people were shot at a Moechella event, including one police officer, who did not return fire at the crowded area.

The shooting was preceded by two earlier incidents that caused panic and trampling at the concert.

Hundred people gathering to hear music played from a truck on a street sidewalk, DC Police Chief Robert Contee told reporters at a news conference.

The shooting took place during Moechella, which is described as an “Advocacy Festival Amplifying the Culture of Washington DC,” Fox News reported.

Emergency personnel recovered an illegal firearm from one individual as they tended to the injured, he said.
Gunfire subsequently broke out near 14th and U Streets Northwest, close to the concert site, where the teen was killed and others were wounded.
Several firearms were discovered on the scene, including a handgun on one of the two adults who was shot and transported to a local hospital, Contee said.
The officer and the two civilians were hospitalized and are in a stable condition, he said.
