Vigil being held for DC reporter killed by gunfire one year ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — A vigil is being held for a reporter who was killed by gunfire a year ago while she was going home after an assignment in the District of Columbia.

The vigil for 27-year-old Charnice Milton is being held Friday evening.

Police have said that Milton, who worked at Capital Community News, was changing buses when she was shot May 27, 2015. Police have said they believe the bullet that killed her was intended for someone else who also was at the bus stop. Police released surveillance video showing a group on dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles and have said they believe someone on one of those bikes was responsible.

On Thursday, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier called on anyone who has any information about the shooting to come forward.
