  • 7-year-old Houston girl shot dead while in car with her mom

Investigators say the driver of the pickup, described as a man in his 40s, fired into the auto, striking Jazmine and wounding her mother, 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington.

After the shooting, Washington and her other daughters noticed Jazmine was unresponsive.

"You should have a heart and step forward and say you did this to this baby because she did not deserve what you did to her".

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the girl who died was 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.

"It's our belief that it was totally unprovoked, whatever it was, and we're leaving no stone unturned". Police say they are looking for an armed and risky suspect, described as a bearded white man in his 40s who was wearing a red hoodie.

The image of the red, four-door pickup was captured shortly before the shooting occurred Sunday morning, Harris County sheriff's Lt. Christopher Sandoval told reporters.

The seven-year-old was the daughter of the woman who was wounded, authorities said. "We're going to leave every motive out there as a possibility", Gonzalez said in a separate statement. Investigators describe him as a white male in his 40s with a beard and driving a red pickup truck.

"Please keep this family in your prayers". "A total of 5 occupants in the vehicle witnessed this child, their loved one, shot and killed before their eyes". Another child was hurt by shattered glass.

The sheriff said he had never met the 7-year-old but noticed her "million-dollar smile" in photographs.

The Sheldon Independent School District identified the girl as a second-grader at the nearby Monahan Elementary School.
