Washington, D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee’s voice was thick with anger on Saturday night as he talked about the last victim of gun violence in the city: a bubbly 6-year-old named Nyiah Courtney, who was riding her scooter just before a drive-by shooter snuffed out her life.
“I am asking that we all stand together and say, ‘No more!’’ Contee said. “I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.”
Just after 11 p.m. on Friday, Nyiah was on the street with her parents and sister when a barrage of gunfire erupted. Six people were shot; police bundled Nyiah into a patrol car and rushed to the hospital, but she could not be saved.
