DC - Charnice Milton, 27, reporter used as human shield, shot dead, 27 May 2015
<<snipped>> A Washington, D.C., journalist was fatally shot when the intended victim of a bullet used the young woman, who was transferring buses, as a human shield, police and family members said.
Charnice Milton, 27, was in the “wrong place, wrong time” and was “certainly not the intended victim,” D.C. police Chief Cathy Lanier told reporters at a somber scene in southeast D.C. She’d been covering a community meeting and texted her mother afterwards to say she was headed home. Ten minutes later, the innocent victim was gunned down in the street.

This month marks the one year since a local journalist was shot and killed. Her unsolved murder and the many more in D.C. have clergy members taking on the fight to solve them.
From Catholics to Muslims, leaders of various faiths met at the Salvation Army Solomon G. Brown Community Center on Saturday morning. They are part of the Open Heart/Case Close Campaign, fueled by slain journalist, Charnice Milton’s family. The goal is to remind D.C., the Southeast community especially, of all the loved ones lost who have still not received justice.
Milton’s photo was one of more than 100 pasted to poster-boards showing D.C.’s unsolved murders since 2011.
