Police looking for video of festival shooting that injured 11-year-old boy

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Columbus, Ohio, police are seeking any video that may have been taken of a shooting at a weekend festival that wounded an 11-year-old boy.

The shooting happened Saturday night at the Juneteenth Festival, which celebrates the end of slavery in the U.S. The violence ended the annual festival at a park just outside downtown Columbus.

The boy was hit in the leg by a stray gunshot and hospitalized with injuries that weren't life-threatening. A 15-year-old boy was arrested.

Police say four other young people had been involved in fighting and were arrested before the shooting.

Officers are asking the public to take a look at any cellphone or other video captured to see if it could be used as evidence in the case.
