A mass shooting broke out during a Juneteenth celebration in Washington, DC on Sunday as women were seen twerking on top of cars.

"Neighborhood activist Ty Hobson-Powell was set to speak at the event known as Moechella about gun violence when the shooting began near 14th and U Streets NW," WUSA 9 reported Monday. "The annual event was held to recognize D.C.'s rich history and celebrate Juneteenth, but Hobson-Powell said the message was muddied by senseless violence."

Chase Poole, 15, was killed in the shooting and three others were shot and injured, including one police officer.

"The Washington Post reported that DC Police said they found a gun on Chase's body, and that he'd been shot twice in the past," WUSA 9 said.

"Moechella is a symbol of black culture in dc [sic] and is built on the foundation of peace," Moechella said in a statement after the event.
