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. At about 8:48 p.m., as police were telling organizers to shut the event down, gunshots rang out, D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department said.

The 15-year-old boy, identified by police as Chase Poole, was killed, police said.

Three others, including a D.C. police officer, were shot and have non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
