    A woman is charged with obstructing justice in the case of Makiyah Wilson, the 10-year-old girl who was gunned down while heading to an ice cream truck in Northeast D.C. this summer, police said.

    Quanisha Ramsuer, 25, of Southeast DC was arrested Tuesday.

    Wilson was killed July 16 after four men jumped out of a car and opened fire on a group of people outside on a hot summer night. 

    The little girl, who had recently finished fourth grade, was heading to an ice cream truck when the shooters fired on the 300 block of 53rd Street NE

    Five others have been charge in the case: 16-year-old Marquell Cobbs, who is charged as an adult, Mark Tee Price, Gregory Taylor, Quentin Michals and Qujuan Thomas.

    Prosecutors say Michals was the ringleader, organizing the shooting because of a beef he had with someone in Wilson's neighborhood. 

    Michals, Taylor and Thomas were ordered to remain in jail after a judge found that there was strong enough evidence, including text messages, to keep them there. Cobbs and Price are due in court Dec. 5. 

    The night that Wilson was killed, the gunmen fired more than 60 shots, got back into an Infiniti sedan and sped off. 

    Four other people, including Wilson's 18-year-old sister, were shot and wounded.
