Mom of 3-Year-Old Gunned Down to Killer: "You Need to Turn Yourself In"

View Comments ()



    In her first interview, the mother of a 3-year-old girl who was gunned down in Landover, Maryland last weekend begged her daughter's alleged killer to turn himself in.

    Prince George's County Police have been conducting a manhunt since Sunday for Knijah Amore Bibb's killer.

    Police say Davon "Dro" Wallace had gotten into an argument over clothing at a home in the 6900 block of Forest Terrace. He left the residence, and came back later with a gun, firing several shots into that same home, police say.

    One of those bullets struck Knijah of Northwest D.C., who was visiting her cousins at the time. Police said Wallace's intended target, a boy in his late teens, was not inside the home at the time of the shooting.

    Bibb's death has devastated her family and community. 

    "I hope he burns in hell because he took an innocent child's life," Knijah's grandmother Brenda Bibb said. "She was so loving. Everybody loved her."

    Tuesday, Prince George's County Police officers conducted a search of a Landover home on the same block as the shooting.

    The homeowner told News4 she has told "Dro" to stay away.

    "I told Dro he's not welcome here anymore, so somebody had to tell the police that he used to come to my house," the woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, said.

    Knijah would have turned 4 next month.
