Houston girl, seven, is shot dead in Walmart parking lot

Police are searching for a man who opened fire on a vehicle in the Houston area, killing a 7-year-old girl.

Harris County sheriff Ed Gonzalez identified the 7-year-old girl as Jazmine Barnes and the injured mother as 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington.

Authorities are investigating a deadly shooting outside of a Walmart in Houston, Texas, that left an 8-year-old girl dead, December 30, 2018.

Investigators in Houston said Monday that they have a surveillance video image of a pickup truck from which a driver fired several shots into a auto carrying a family, killing a 7-year-old girl and wounding the child's mother.

Washington said she tried to protect Barnes and told the other girls to get down. A man driving a red pickup truck pulled up next to Washington's auto and started shooting into her vehicle and then sped away.

The suspect is still on the run in a red pickup truck that fled the scene.

"Please keep this family in your prayers", Gonzalez tweeted Sunday night. A total of 5 occupants in the vehicle witnessed this innocent child, their loved one, shot and killed before their eyes.

The suspect, who was still at large as of Sunday morning, "is considered armed and risky", Razo told reporters. We will locate you, we will find you, ' he added.

It wasn't clear what triggered the shooting.

Homicide detectives were scouring the area and checking surveillance video for clues.

Razo said his department will continue to investigate the incident and "use all of our resources to bring this killer to justice".

Gonzalez urged the suspect to turn himself in. He was described as being in his 40s and having a beard, Razo said.

"Unfortunately, the life of my 7 yr old little girl was taken selfishly by a unknown suspect".
