District 2 Council Member Wanika Fisher Responds to Fatal Shooting of 2-Year-Old in Langley Park

My Council colleagues and I are outraged by the senseless act of gun violence that has claimed the innocent life of a two-year-old and injured his young mother in Langley Park. My heart aches for her as she must now endure this unimaginable tragedy.  


Every child deserves to feel safe and grow up in a community that nurtures and protects them. The fact that such a heinous act of violence could be inflicted upon a young, innocent, life is a stark reminder of the urgent need for greater efforts to address gun violence and to build safer communities for our children.  I stand in solidarity with the mother, family and loved ones of the young victim, offering my deepest condolences and unwavering support during this difficult time.  We must come together as a community to condemn such acts and work tirelessly to ensure that our streets are safe for all, especially our youngest and most vulnerable members. 


Law enforcement is conducting a full investigation of this matter.  Anyone with information on this case who would like to speak to a Homicide Unit detective may call 301-516-2512 or contact Crime Solvers online at
