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.”

Portland protesters smash windows of police car, flatten tires after officer-involved shooting: officials

Portland police have released more information about Thursday night’s fatal officer-involved shooting and the events that followed when a mob of protesters took to the city’s streets, where some flattened tires and broke windows on at least one police car in the area, authorities said.

Details of any protest-related arrests were not available as of early Friday morning, but authorities overnight shared images of a police car that had its tires flattened and windows shattered by what they described as a “hostile crowd.” 

In an updated summary of events, the Portland Police Bureau said early Friday its officers were dispatched just after 7 p.m. Thursday to conduct a welfare check on “a white adult male dressed in all black at a motel.” Police did not provide any other information about what led to the shooting other than to say: “After officers arrived with paramedics, they encountered a man matching that description and an officer involved shooting took place.”

Chief Chuck Lovell said preliminary information suggested the officer “encountered a very difficult and dynamic situation that no officer wants to face.”

Police will announce the name of the officer involved in the shooting, who has been placed on paid leave pending an investigation, at some time on Friday, they said. 

The demonstrators gathered as police were investigating the shooting. Police said some protesters threw objects and one person grabbed an officer’s baton. An officer was sprayed with an unspecified chemical substance.

The police bureau said in a tweet that there was “erroneous information being circulated on social media” regarding the shooting, and said the suspect involved in the shooting was a White adult man. Police said no one else was hurt.
