CROWDS of revelers were seen fleeing in horror after gunfire erupted at a music festival.
On June 19, a shooting during a Moechella concert in Washington, DC, claimed the life of a 15-year-old kid and injured three others.
Partygoers can be seen fleeing the scene in a video that was posted online.
A few were observed twerking on the hoods of cars, before ducking behind them for shelter.
“Stampede at Moechella…,” tweeted one Twitter user. In my opinion, “I’m safe, but I’m confident that many others are not.”
The Chief of the Metropolitan Police Department, Robert Contee, disclosed that there was a “event” that took place at the concert and that it was diffused.
According to a story in the Washington Post, he stated that individuals “began to scatter” as a second incident took place.
According to the authorities, the second incident resulted in persons being trampled on.
According to Contee, several individuals sustained injuries as a result of having their legs and ankles trodden on.
On the sidewalk, injured people could be seen being treated by medical professionals.
After then, officers began to put a stop to the gathering because they believed it to be “dangerous.”
Witness Daniel Dyson explained to WWTG that the child was yelling for his mother the entire time.
He made an effort to assist the young man who had been shot.
He stated, “You know, my mind is blown because I was attempting to cover up this individual.
When you least expect it, they tell you he’s gone.
Multiple weapons were found at the scene, according to police.
