Columbus police are seeking any video that may have been taken of a shooting at a weekend festival that injured an 11-year-old boy.

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

The shooting happened at a park just outside downtown Columbus at the Juneteenth Festival. 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.

The shooting ended the annual festival, which celebrates the end of slavery in the U.S.

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