Prince George's County police say they've made an arrest in connection to the fatal shooting of a toddler.

Police say 24-year-old Brian Ray Campbell helped Davon Wallace, the man believed to have fatally shot 3-year-old Knijah Amore Bibb, and was instrumental in the crime. Campbell has been charged with murder, manslaughter, and accessory. He is being held without bond.

Lt. Bill Alexander says they arrested Campbell at police headquarters."I wish I could come to you today and wish he had a crisis of conscious after he'd heard a 3-year-old girl," Alexander said. "Unfortunately, I cannot say that to you."

Alexander says the preliminary investigation reveals Campbell gave Wallace the gun prior to the murder and helped him get away from the scene afterward. He calls the arrest "bittersweet" because Wallace, the suspected killer, is still at large.

Police are offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to his arrest and indictment.
