HOUSTON (AP) – A man in a pickup stood next to a car leaving a parking lot in Walmart, Houston, and began shooting, killing a 7-year-old girl in the car and hurting the girl's mother authorities said Sunday.
There were three other girls in the car, but it was not immediately clear if they were related to the woman the authorities claim was being shot in the arm.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Twitter and Facebook have been killed by 7-year-old girl Jazmine Barnes. He said her mother, 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington, had been wounded, but survived her injury.
It was not immediately clear what had happened on Sunday morning. An arrest had not been made until Sunday evening.
The red pickup fled the scene after the shooting. The car also raced off before it came to a stop and the woman called 91
Sheriff Maj. Jesse Razo said the other girls in the car when the shootings took place were "shaken" and "devastated".
"We will use all available resources to bring this killer to justice," Razo told reporters on the ground. "And I urge you, whoever did that, you know who you are, please contact now, because we will look for you, we will find you, we will find you."
