WASHINGTON -- New developments in the murder of 68-year-old grandmother, and cherished Southeast community member, Vivian Marrow.   Marrow was shot and killed in the 2400 block of Elvans Road, while heading to the store in her wheelchair Monday morning.

Wednesday, Metropolitan Police Department released surveillance video showing exactly what happened during the shooting.

The video can be hard to watch, as it shows Marrow, cruising down the sidewalk in her wheelchair, when two people run pass her.  The person in front appears to be running from the second man who investigators said was shooting with his left hand.  The grandmother gets hit by a stray bullet, slumps over, and her wheelchair spins slowly as the suspect flees the scene.

Police also released this description of the person of interest: “The suspect is described as a black male, slim build, and appears to be left handed.”

Marrow’s granddaughter told DCW50, she chose not to watch the video because it was just too tragic and difficult to watch.  However, she and the entire family are begging everyone else to watch it, share it, and contact police with tips.

If you have any information you can call MPD anonymously at: 202-727-9099.

The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone that provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for any homicide committed in the District of Columbia.

And the family has set up a GoFundMe page to pay for Marrow’s funeral expenses:
