Columbus' Juneteenth Festival returns this weekend amid increased security.

The organizer of the annual Juneteenth Festival is taking the city to federal court, claiming officials discriminated against the African-American community by stopping the festival last year after a child was shot.

Columbus police say they had no choice but to shut down the annual Juneteenth Festival early.

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