A month after a 3-year-old girl was shot and killed in Landover, Maryland, investigators are having a hard time finding a break that will lead them to the suspect.
The FBI joined local authorities in their search for 25-year-old Davon "Dro" Wallace.
Wallace got into an argument over clothing at a home in the 6900 block of Forest Terrace Drive Aug. 10, police said. He left the residence, went back with a gun and allegedly fired several shots into that same home.
One of those bullets struck Knijah Amore Bibb 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.
Wallace lived in the same neighborhood and has ties there, and nobody is talking to police.
Retired D.C. police detective and attorney Ted Williams told News4 the reason might be that in areas where violent crime is routine, people fear retaliation for helping police, knowing police can't protect them 24 hours per day.
Williams said his experiences lead him to believe Wallace is not far away.
Wallace is facing a first-degree murder charge; he is also wanted on a federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
