Teenagers killed, 3 injured in shooting during June 16 celebrations in the country’s capital

WASHINGTON – A teenager is dead and three other people injured, including a police officer, after a shooting Sunday night in Washington, DC

The incident happened near a concert celebrating June 16.

The youngest victim was just 15 years old.

Police believe this may have been the work of a lone gunman.

According to officials, the concert was an unauthorized event.

Police said there was a disturbance in the early evening that prompted some to leave, but a large crowd still remained in the area.

More than 100 officers were patrolling the area at the time.

Bullets from the gunman hit an officer in the leg, killing a teenager.

“We have a child who was killed today at an event where the number of people that were here wasn’t properly planned and with guns and our police managing a crowd at the scene someone used a gun and a child is dead,” Mayor Muriel Bowser said.

Police are trying to figure out a motive and are still searching for the shooter.
