Funeral for 3-year-old girl, shot and killed in Landover

Posted: Updated:
LANDOVER, Md. - A community came together Wednesday to remember an innocent 3-year-old who died as the result of a petty argument. Police say Knijah Bibb was shot and killed by a bullet meant for someone else, and while friends and family said their goodbyes, police said they won't give up the search for her killer.  

Police issued a serious warning today to anyone who might be harboring or helping 25-year-old Davon Antwan Wallace, who is the suspect in her murder. They are also asking the community to remember the outrage they felt when this first happened, and give authorities any information that will lead to his capture.

Police say Wallace fired shots at a home because he thought someone inside the home was wearing his clothes. But in the end, Knijah was killed.  Officers say when they arrived at the scene, they found her suffering from a gunshot wound, and her family says the bullet entered her side and came out through her heart.

Police say Wallace was a dating girl who lived at home where shooting took place and he got mad that her little brother was borrowing or wearing his clothes. 

They believe someone is helping Wallace avoid the law, and while they won't say who, they are issuing a firm warning to anyone who does.

Meanwhile, it was standing-room only as the community came out to say goodbye and offer support for Knijah's family.

Investigators believe Wallace is still in the area, telling the media that at one point, they felt they were close to bringing him in through talks with his attorney, but that effort fell through.  Prince George's County Police Commander Cesar Pacheco would not elaborate on negotiations

Police have made one arrest in connection to the little girl's death.  Brian Ray Campbell, 24, faces charges after they say he assisted Wallace by providing him the weapon used in the shooting and helping him get away after the shooting. 

Anyone with information on Wallace's whereabouts is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-866-411-TIPS.
