LANDOVER, Md. (WJZ) — Police make an arrest in the shooting death of a three-year-old girl in Prince George’s County. But the man in custody is not the suspected gunman.

Derek Valcourt explains Prince George’s County Police say he was an accessory to the murder.

The man arrested lives on the same street where the shooting happened. Police say he helped the murder suspect before and after the shooting of this little girl.

Brian Ray Campbell, 24, didn’t pull the trigger, but he’s still charged with the first-degree murder of three-year-old Knijah Bibb. Police say he was an accessory to still-on-the-loose accused gunman Davon Wallace both before and after the shooting.

“Brian Campbell was instrumental in this horrific crime that occurred. They believe that Brian gives Wallace the weapon that he uses and also provides him transport after the crime occurs,” said Lt. Bill Alexander, Prince George’s County Police.

“I’m destroyed. I’m destroyed because I lost something that was a part of me that I loved so much,” the victim’s grandmother, Brenda Bibb, said.

The shots rang out Sunday on Forest Terrace in Landover. That’s when police say a fight over clothing erupted between Wallace and a male living in the house–with Wallace allegedly grabbing a gun. The outside of the house was riddled with at least five bullet holes. One shot pierced the window, killing three-year-old Knijah, who was visiting and playing inside.

“I hope he burns in hell. Because he didn’t have to do that. He didn’t,” said Karla Mack, victim’s relative.

The little girl’s heartbroken family members are demanding justice. Campbell is now facing a long list of charges for helping Wallace, who remains at large.

The reward for information leading to Wallace’s capture is now up to $25,000.
