White Man Kills Black Girl, 7, In Drive-By Shooting, Police Say

A 7-year-old girl was killed in Texas Sunday after a man opened fire on the car in which she was riding authorities said

Jazmine Barnes, 7, was reportedly riding in a auto with her mother and three sisters around 7:00 a.m. local time Sunday when the suspected gunman abruptly pulled up beside them in a pickup truck and began shooting.

Deputies said five people were in the vehicle that was leaving a Walmart store when a man pulled up next to it and started firing. The mother was transported with an injury to her arm to an area hospital, Razo said. Another child in the auto suffered minor injuries from glass fragments. Two teenage girls who were riding in the auto were not injured.

Investigators say they have an image from surveillance video of a pickup whose driver fired several shots into a auto carrying a family, killing a 7-year-old girl and wounding the child's mother. He is described as a bearded white male, possibly in his 40s, who was wearing a red hoodie, according to the sheriff's office.

The red pickup fled the scene after the shooting. "A total of 5 occupants in the vehicle witnessed this child, their loved one, shot and killed before their eyes".

The 7-year-old girl's mother was shot, too, Gonzalez said. "So senseless. It's never easy, and extra hard during the holiday season".

The suspect, who is still at large, "is considered armed and risky", Razo told reporters.

It wasn't clear what triggered the shooting.

The sheriff's office is asking locals in the area around Wallisville Road near the E. Sam Houston Parkway, near the Walmart, to check surveillance video to try an identify the suspect.

"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", an emotional Christopher Cevilla told reporters on Monday.

He urged the suspect to surrender.

The 30-year-old Washington was expected to recover from her wound.
