A Houston-area woman who was wounded in a shooting that killed her 7-year-old daughter says the gunman fired a series of shots while driving alongside the woman's vehicle and then continued to fire as he pulled in front of the auto.
Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha Washington, 30, was shot in the arm and Jazmine's 6-year-old sister was struck by shattered glass, the sheriff said.
Two teenagers and a younger girl were also in Washington's vehicle, Gonzalez said. Razo said the other girls inside the auto were "shaken" and "devastated". The gunman was described only as a bearded white man, possibly in his 40s, wearing a red hooded sweatshirt.
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. It was also revealed that no arrests have been made in the incident, and the motive is also unclear.
The suspect, who is still at large, "is considered armed and unsafe", Razo told reporters.
Razo added that investigators planned to review surveillance videos from the entire area.
"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.
"We are going to use all resources available to bring this killer to justice", Razo said.
He urged the suspect to surrender.
"Someone who does something like that will eventually talk about it, and we need anyone with information to come forward", said Razo.
The sheriff said he had never met the 7-year-old but noticed her "million-dollar smile" in photographs.
