DC police ask for help to ID vehicle used in shooting death of 6-year-old

D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee asked for the public’s help in identifying a silver sedan used in a Friday night drive-by shooting that left six-year-old Nyiah Courtney dead.

Contee also said a reward no less than $60,000 is being offered to anyone who can provide information leading to an arrest in the crime that killed the girl and wounded five others.

“Together we will do whatever it takes to close this case in a swift and professional manner,” Contee said.

Contee said Nyiah would have been starting the first grade this fall. “And now that won’t happen,” he said.

He urged the community to come together to curb the ongoing gun violence in the city.

“We have a collective responsibility to ensure our children have every opportunity to be safe from violence. I am asking that we all stand together and say no more. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired,” Contee said.

Police released a video Saturday showing a silver sedan driving through the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X avenues in Congress Heights at approximately 11 p.m. Friday. Contee described the event as “a drive-by shooting.”

In total, six people were shot, including Nyiah Courtney, who was taken to a hospital where she would be pronounced dead. Three men and two women were also taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

Contee and Bowser urged city residents to help police identify the owner of the vehicle, its driver and other passengers.

“We ask that people take a moment to see if they recognize the car and provide tips or information to bring closure for Nyiah,” Contee said.

Justice for Nyiah was the news conference theme.

“We know from past instances that the community can help us close cases by sharing information or simply reposting images,” he added.

The FBI and the ATF are partnering with D.C. police to help identify the shooter. The agencies also contributed towards the reward.

During the news conference officials acknowledged they did not yet know what the motive for the shooting was.

Community members attending the news conference said they wanted more from the police.

“I charged the police with a simple thing,” Bowser said. “What I believe is we don’t let people get away with murder in our town. We have to stand up against it. We don’t let anybody get away with murder. And we don’t do street justice because then other innocent people get caught up in it. Law enforcement is responsible for arresting and ensuring justice.”

Boyfriend of woman found shot to death in wrecked car is charged with murder

Prosecutors have formally charged Terence Vos, a parolee and alleged gang member, of fatally shooting his girlfriend before crashing the car they were in on I-80. (Salt Lake City Police Department)

SALT LAKE CITY — Prosecutors have formally charged a parolee accused of fatally shooting his girlfriend, crashing the car they were in on I-80, and then tossing parts of a gun from an overpass in May.

Terence Trent Vos, 31, faces a charge of aggravated murder, a first-degree felony and capital offense, in the death of Shandon Nicole Scott, 32.

Troopers arrived at the scene of the crash just before 3 a.m. on May 1 to find Vos “running around the vehicle” and noted he “would not calm down,” according to charging documents filed Monday. Detectives found the wounded Scott in the car and spotted her ID, purse and credit cards scattered along the side of the freeway.

An autopsy found Scott had been shot 12 times, including in the heart and right lung. At a vigil after her death, friends of Scott described Vos as abusive toward her.

No attorney was listed for Vos in court records as of Monday. He’s being held in the Utah State Prison.

While police were attempting to revive Scott, Vos ran away and was apprehended a short time later, prosecutors say. He allegedly told police his girlfriend “had been shot and he was trying to take her to the hospital.” He showed officers where the shooting happened, pointed out a shell casing and a pool of blood, and said he couldn’t remember what he’d done with the gun, the charges say.

Another driver who saw the crashed car and pulled over to help told police he had seen Vos get out of the car and start “running all over the place while saying that they got shot.” Vos threw something over the freeway wall, according to the driver, and unsuccessfully tried to take his car.

Vos is a former Public Enemy No. 1 of the Salt Lake Metro Gang Unit. He has been arrested in the past in several shootings in Salt Lake City, and was twice convicted of discharging a gun from the freeway in 2006.

Vos was granted parole last year, but a warrant was issued for his arrest on Feb. 3, according to records from the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole.

Prosecutors have requested he be held without bail, saying he’s a flight risk and danger to the public. They have not indicated whether Vos wrecked the vehicle on purpose.

Unified police have said Scott was shot at a townhome complex at 700 East and 2700 South just moments before police responded to the crash.

Neighbors reported hearing pounding about 2:45 a.m. and hearing a man and woman fighting, with the woman screaming and pleading with someone not to hurt her before gunshots rang out, the charges say.

Later, in a phone call he made from jail, Vos mentioned having a fight with someone before saying “I don’t
