Gunman in Walmart parking lot kills 7-year-old girl

"Unfortunately, the life of my 7 yr old little girl was taken selfishly by a unknown suspect". Two teenage girls who were riding in the vehicle were not injured.

Watch the news conference with the latest in the killing of Jazmine Barnes.

Authorities initially said the shooting occurred as Washington was leaving a Walmart parking lot, but Gonzalez on Monday said it occurred on a nearby service road as the family was heading to a store.

After the shooting, Washington and her other daughters noticed Jazmine was unresponsive.

The shooter pulled alongside the mother's vehicle (pictured) and fired into it, killing the girl.

The younger girl suffered glass fragment injuries and the teens weren't hurt, but they were "shaken" and "devastated", said Jesse Razo, a major with the sheriff's office.

Authorities are still searching for the gunman, described as a bearded white man, possibly in his 40s. Deputies say a 7-year-old girl and the woman were shot.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the girl who died was 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.

Investigators in Houston said Monday that they have a surveillance video image of a pickup truck from which a driver fired several shots into a vehicle carrying a family, killing a 7-year-old girl and wounding the child's mother.

"We are going to use all resources available to bring this killer to justice", Razo said.

"People who usually commit this type of crime talk about it", Sheriff's Maj. "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".
