Teen Boy Hurt in Shooting Outside DC’s Annual Turkey Bowl Football Game – NBC4 Washington

A 15-year-old boy was shot in the leg after violence broke out outside DC’s annual Turkey Bowl football game on Thanksgiving Day.

DC Police said people heard multiple gunshots at 17th and East Capitol streets NE around 1:20 p.m.

Officers found the teenage boy with a gunshot wound to the left leg, police said.

A bullet tore a hole in a car windshield.

At the time of the shooting, the Turkey Bowl championship football game between the Roosevelt Roughriders and the Dunbar Crimson Tide was taking place at Eastern High School.

News4’s Mark Segraves reported that there was a fight in the stands at the game before the shooting and some people had to leave the game. A DC police spokesman said the fight was unrelated to the shooting.

The game continued, and some fans in the stands told News4 they were unaware of the shooting.

Crime scene video showed a gun in the street as police investigated.

Police are asking the public to be on the lookout for an older gray Toyota Camry with tags FP3600 DC, and anyone with information to call 202-727-9099.
