  • 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 vehicle, striking Jazmine and wounding her mother, 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington.

"As I turned around and looked back at the street, I heard shots start firing and they came through my window, broke my glass, and hit me in my arm", she told the station. "And as a man, you should step forward and take full responsibility for what you did to my child", Washington said.

Sheriff's Maj. Jesse Razo said the teenagers who were in the auto are "shaken" and "devastated". The suspect, who authorities are describing as a white male in his 40s, fled the scene in a red truck. Another child in the vehicle suffered minor injuries from glass fragments.

The 7-year-old girl's mother was shot, too, Gonzalez said. "He didn't even know who she was", she said.

Thirty-year-old LaPorsha Washington told KTRK-TV from her hospital bed Monday that the man driving a red pickup sped up after firing into her auto, only to pull in front and slow down before firing again.

"The family should be celebrating and spending time together anticipating the new year and instead they're making plans to bury this innocent, precious child", Gonzalez said.

"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. A total of 5 occupants in the vehicle witnessed this innocent child, their loved one, shot and killed before their eyes.

"We're going to use all resources available to bring this killer to justice", police spokesman Jesse Razo said, Local12 reported.

Authorities say a motive for the shooting is not clear.

Razo added that investigators planned to review surveillance videos from the entire area. "He's not human", the relative said of the suspect.
