Prince George’s County police have identified a suspect in connection with the homicide of a three-year-old girl in Landover.

Around 2 p.m. Sunday, county police responded to the report of a shooting at the 6900 block of Forest Terrace in Landover, according to a police statement. They found Knijah Amore Bibb, 3, of Washington, D.C., suffering from a gunshot wound, police said. Bibb was rushed to a nearby hospital where she later died of her injuries, police said.

Police have charged Davon Antwan Wallace, 25, of the 7000 block of E Kilmer Street in Landover with first degree murder in connection with the homicide.

Police are still searching for Wallace, who fled the scene, and are offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case. Anyone with information can contact the Prince George’s County Police Department’s homicide unit at 301-772-4925.
