Mayor Muriel Bowser stressed the importance of safety and securing permits for events in the city.
“We have a child who was killed today at an event that did not have any proper planning for the number of people who were here and with guns involved,” Bowser told the press conference. “The chief and I will continue to make sure we have the resources we need on these corridors and all of our corridors but we need some accountability here.”
