15 Year Old Dead, Three Others Wounded After Shooting in Washington D.C.

A fifteen year old boy died and three other people were wounded including a police officer during a shooting in Washington D.C. last night. The shooting happened after two earlier incidents at an un-permitted concert that caused ‘panic and trampling’ during which several hundred people gathered to hear music played from a truck on a street sidewalk. Officers responded and were able to contain the area and shut down the concert after the second incident. Several people sustained injuries to their legs and ankles as the crowd dispersed. Following the closure of the concert, shots were fired nearby and the teen was killed and others were injured. Several firearms were discovered at the scene. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is assisting local police with the investigation.
