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. She was wounded in the arm but is expected to survive, officials said.
"She said, 'Momma, Jazmine's not moving".
The 7-year-old girl's mother was shot, too, Gonzalez said. "And I urge you, whoever did this, you know who you are, please turn yourself in now because we will be looking for you, we will locate you, we will find you".
"It's our belief that it was totally unprovoked, whatever it was, and we're leaving no stone unturned".
"Of course they're shaken, they're devastated, they lost a sister", Razo said.
Suspect arrested in shooting death of California officer
A suspect police are searching for in connection to the fatal shooting of an officer during a traffic stop in Northern California. The sheriff did not provide the name of his employer because he said Arriaga had no long-term, consistent employment at one job.
The woman driver, possibly in a panic, was able to flee the scene in her auto, racing onto the nearby Belt Parkway before coming to rest on the median.
Authorities are still searching for the gunman, described as a bearded white man, possibly in his 40s. "We're going to leave every motive out there as a possibility", Gonzalez said. Authorities are asking the public for tips and appealing to nearby residents and businesses to review surveillance video for the red pickup truck.
"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.
"Unfortunately, the life of my 7 yr old little girl was taken selfishly by a unknown suspect". Another child in the vehicle suffered minor injuries from glass fragments. "A total of 5 occupants in the auto witnessed this child, their loved one, shot and killed before their eyes".
Anyone with information about the suspect is urged to call Houston CrimeStoppers anonymously at 713-222-8477 for a potential cash reward.
