Shooting in Washington DC in the United States on Sunday has left one person died and injured several others, including a police officer.

According to US-based Fox News, citing a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Department, four people were shot at a Moechella event, including a police officer, who did not return fire at the crowded area.

“The victims included a 15-year-old boy, who was declared dead at the scene, two adults and an officer,” said Robert J. Contee III, chief of the Metropolitan Police Department.

The Metropolitan Police chief also said the MPD officer was shot in a lower extremity and is expected to survive. The adults were shifted to a local hospital.

In an immediate press conference, Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser called for “accountability” for those responsible. “We need some accountability here,” she said.

“We have a child that was killed at an event that didn’t have proper planning, with people with guns involved. Even with police managing crowds on-site, someone used a gun and now a child is dead,” added Mayor Muriel Bowser.
