Gunfire broke out early Sunday morning in a Washington D.C. residential neighborhood injuring nine people and killing one.
According to NY Post, the fatal shooting occurred around 1 a.m. on Dubois Place in the Greenway neighborhood of Southeast Washington.
A resident of the neighborhood claims that everyone was in attendance, including a DJ.
“You had DJs, everybody was down there. It was more women than men,” said Nelson Bostic, a resident who said the gathering had been a birthday celebration.
Bostic continues, “Next thing you know, it was like Beirut out here. It sounded like machine guns and everything else that was going on out here.”
An unidentified man was killed, and the nine others that were injured were taken to different hospitals for a gunshot wound treatment.
There’s no apparent motive on the shooting, and no arrests have been announced.
Update: The victim has been identified as 17-year old Christopher Brown, a father to 1-year-old Elijah and who was expecting another on the way.
There are currently 20 people being treated for their injuries. D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham says that they are looking for multiple shooters.
