Source: Person of interest in death of McKenzie Elliott named turns himself in for unrelated crime

BALTIMORE - Sources tell ABC2 that a person of interest has been identified, somehow connected to the death of 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott. 

Baltimore man Tyrone Jamison turned himself into police for a violation of his probation stemming from a possession of an illegal firearm charge, court records show. 

The source said Jamison did not turn himself in for a crime related to the fatal shooting of 3-year-old Elliott. 

"We hope that justice is served because this little girl didn't have to lose her life," Khar'Mel with Dangerous Divaz said. 

She helped organize the word of mouth and social media campaign to get a number of motorcycle clubs and riders out onto Old York Road Friday evening.

"We definitely get a bad wrap but we don't do bad things. We try to do stuff for the community and that's what it's about," Khar'Mel told ABC2

On the same day McKenzie was laid to rest, there was a balloon release, candlelight vigil and a ride in her honor. This was all held just feet from where the 3-year-old stood outside before she was hit by a stray bullet.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts earlier this week made a bold prediction to residents of the Waverly neighborhood during a National Night Out event dedicated to Elliott’s memory.

He said he expected officers to arrest a suspect in the shooting by the end of the week.

Elliott was playing on her porch in the 3600 block of York Road when a car pulled up to the corner of Old York and 36th Street and opened fire on a group of people. A 21-year-old woman was also injured. Elliott died later at a local hospital.

About an hour after the shooting, an unidentified man checked himself into a hospital also suffering from gunfire. At the time, police believe he was involved in the drive-by shooting.
