man who fatally shot a 3-year-old girl after fight over clothes sentenced to 45 years

a maryland man who fatally shot a 3-year-old girl after firing into a townhouse full of women and children was sentenced wednesday to 45 years in prison, according to the prince george’s county state’s attorney’s office.

davon wallace, 27, of seat pleasant, was convicted of second-degree murder in november in the death of knijah bibb.

during his trial in prince george’s county circuit court, prosecutors said wallace recklessly fired into a house in landover after fighting over clothes with a teenager inside the home in 2014. wallace was dating a woman who lived in the townhouse where the 3-year-old girl and her family were visiting relatives. the girl was running and hiding from the sounds of gunfire when she was struck, according to court testimony.

wallace, who took the stand in his own defense, testified that he simply wanted to scare teenagers inside the home who had previously chased and beaten him. he said that he didn’t intend to kill anyone and his attorney argued that he should be convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

wallace eluded police for five weeks after the shooting before being caught and charged.
