7-year-old killed in drive-by near Houston-area Walmart identified

Houston girl, seven, is shot dead in Walmart parking lot

Christopher Cevilla, father of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, speaks during a news conference, Monday, Dec. 31, 2018, in Houston.

Washington is asking the public to please help in the capture of the person who shot at her auto.

The mother was shot in the arm and taken to Ben Taub Hospital. "He sped off in front of us and stopped, and still continued to fire at us". It was not fair. He intentionally killed my child for no reason. "He didn't even know her, he didn't know who she was".

"My daughter was 7 years old, loving, caring, very passionate with people, very sweet, just an innocent young girl", Cevilla said.

An arrest hadn't been made as of late Sunday afternoon.




Razo said his department will continue to investigate the incident and "use all of our resources to bring this killer to justice".

Jazmine died at the scene, her mother suffered a gunshot wound to the arm and her 6-year-old sister was injured by shattered glass.

Authorities are searching for a gunman after a 7-year-old girl was shot dead in a Walmart parking lot in Houston Sunday as the girl sat in her auto with her mother and three other children.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office said that a man in a red pickup truck pulled up next to their vehicle and opened fire at a auto, killing Jazmine and injuring Washington. The woman drove off rapidly and ended up pulling over to call 911 moments later when she realized her daughter wasn't breathing.

Houston police have launched a massive manhunt after a seven-year-old girl was fatally shot in a Walmart parking lot. The 7-year-old passed away before the ambulance and paramedics could get the child to the hospital. "We need our communities help", tweeted Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.
