The police chief said several illegal firearms were recovered earlier in the night, including the firearm used on the officer.
“When you have large gatherings in a dense area, it only takes one person with a firearm to make this a dangerous setting,” the police chief said.
Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser called for “accountability” for those responsible for the shooting, saying someone used a gun at the event.
