WASHINGTON -- D.C. officials are offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old girl.

Mayor Adrian Fenty and Police Chief Cathy Lanier announced the award money Wednesday.

Kenyetta Nicholson-Stanley was talking to a security guard at the Edgewood Terrace housing complex in northeast Washington earlier this month when the gunman started shooting, striking the girl, police said. The guard returned fire.

Nicholson-Stanley later died at a hospital.

"No detail is too small," Lanier said. "The shooting occurred in a heavily populated neighborhood, and we know many people saw or heard something that night. Help us bring Kenyetta's killer to justice."
