Police are asking for the public’s help after a mass shooting broke out in Washington, D.C., killing a 15-year-old boy.

The Sunday night shooting took place during a festival called “Moechella,” which was celebrating Juneteenth, officials said.

The 15-year-old boy, identified by police as Chase Poole, was killed and three people, including a D.C. Metropolitan police officer, were injured, Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee said.

The officer is expected to be OK and the two civilians were listed in stable condition, officials said Sunday night.
