Police in Columbus say a teen is in custody after a shooting at a festival injured a 10-year-old boy.

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

Police tell media outlets that the boy’s injuries aren’t life threatening. He was at a Columbus hospital late Saturday in stable condition.

Officers say a 15-year-old has been arrested and charged with felonious assault. Police say two others also may have been involved.

Police shut down the festival after the shooting and say it won’t go on Sunday.

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

Juneteenth festivals celebrate the anniversary of the end of slavery in the United States.
