Panic at USA pride parade sends people running

D.C. Pride parade canceled after false report of shots fired

The police arrested him and seized his BB gun - a type of air gun created to shoot metallic ball projectiles - from his brown bag.

Ashley Smith, the president of the tournament organizers, Capital Pride Alliance, remained defiant.

The city police on Sunday said Singh pulled the BB gun after another person allegedly threatened his significant other.

"About a of the contributors within the crowd mentioned there turned into once a person with a gun and that someone had fired a shot", mentioned Commander Guillermo Rivera of the Metropolitan Police Department. Other people were treated at the scene, in Washington's Dupont Circle.

The report says Singh was arrested on the scene in Dupont Circle and charged with three gun related offenses, possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a BB gun, and Carrying a Dangerous Weapon (Outside Home or Place of Business).

One man was taken into custody and multiple people sustained minor injuries after a report of a man with a gun at the Capital Pride parade in Washington, D.C.


An officer stopped Singh and noticed what appeared to be a silver handgun sticking out of his brown bag that was underneath a tree, it was reported.

Police spokesperson Jordan identified the second arrested person as Melissa Duffy, 43, of no fixed address.

"When you have a lot of people, and it's just a loud bang, you're just trying to get from the area", the unidentified man told Sanchez.

Singh is expected to appear in court today. "Suspect 1 kicked Victim 1 (a police officer) in the chest and right arm causing the listed injuries", the report said, adding that "all parties refused medical treatment".

WJLA reporter Victoria Sanchez said on Twitter that one man who initially thought there were gunshots later said he thinks it was the sound of gates falling over.

After the chaos, Capital Pride tweeted that the parade was over but a block party would go on as scheduled.
