Davon Antwan Wallace is wanted for allegedly firing the shot that killed a 3-year-old girl.

Police in Prince George's County say a 3-year-old girl is dead after being struck by gunfire.

Police say they were called to the 6900 block of Forest Terrace in Landover on Sunday and discovered the child. The girl was taken to the hospital, where she died.

Police say there was a fight between two men at the residence and that one man left and returned to open fire. Police say the girl does not appear to have been the target and that they are searching for the suspect, who ran away after the shooting.

The girl has been identified as Knijah Amore Bibb of Northwest D.C., and the suspect as 25-year-old Davon Antwan Wallace of the 7000 block of E. Kilmer Street in Landover. They have charged him with first-degree murder.

The deadly shooting comes just one week after a three-year old girl in Baltimore was killed in a drive-by shooting.
