There is a manhunt underway after a shooting where a seven year old child was brutally shot and killed near a Huston, TX area Walmart.
This sweet little girl was in the car with her mother when a person shot and killed her.
Her father is pleading with the public to help him catch the murderer. "I just want anybody, whoever, out there that knows anything about the murder of my daughter, to just please step up as if it was your own," he said. "Just put yourself in my shoes, in my family's shoes."
The Harris County Sheriff's Office said, Jazmine Barnes, her mother and three siblings were driving near the store in northeastern Harris County close to 7 a.m. on Sunday when a man pulled next to them in a red or maroon four-door pickup truck and fired several shots.
Jazmine was killed at the scene, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez stated during the interview.
Gonzalez also stated, "There was nothing to indicate that the family did anything wrong in any way. They were simply just driving along the service road when this happened to them."
Jazmine's mom was shot in the arm and her sibling was severely injured by shattered glass.
Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha stated "He sped off in front of us and stopped, and still continued to fire at us."
The suspect is described as a bearded white male, possibly in his 40s, who was wearing a red hoodie, according to the sheriff's office.
There are still many questions that need answered as it does appear this was more than likely not a random shooting. What was the motive? No matter the details the suspect must be found.
