Aug. 9 (UPI) -- At least one person died and one other was critically injured after 21 people were shot at a large gathering in Washington, D.C. on Sunday.

Police Chief Peter Newsham said 17-year-old Christopher Brown was killed in the shooting and an unidentified off-duty police officer who appeared to have been attending the party was injured and is "fighting for her life."

Two of the victims were 17 years old and the rest were adults. Newsham said that the injuries to the other 19 victims are not believed to be life-threatening.

He added that no permit was issued for the gathering which was believed to have been attended by hundreds of people, as gatherings of more than 50 people are currently prohibited in Washington, D.C., due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
