Authorities are seeking the public's help in locating a man in a pickup truck who pulled up next to a auto that was leaving a Houston-area Walmart parking lot Sunday and started shooting, killing Barnes inside the vehicle and wounding the girl's mother.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office on Monday asked for video that may help them track a red pickup that pulled alongside a auto Sunday carrying Jazmine Barnes as it was leaving a Walmart parking lot.

Houston police have launched a massive manhunt after a seven-year-old girl was fatally shot in a Walmart parking lot. "I could never imagine the day of losing one of my own children let alone the youngest of my 8 in such a selfish and sensless way (sic)", says the page.

Washington said she tried to protect Barnes and told the other girls to get down.

"I urge you, whoever did this, you know who are, please turn yourself in", said Major Jesse Razo.

The suspect was wearing a red hoodie and fled in a red truck, Gonzalez said.

Jazmine's mother, 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington, was shot and wounded, Gonzalez said.




"Please keep this family in your prayers", Gonzalez tweeted Sunday night.

The suspect, who is still at large, "is considered armed and risky", Razo told reporters.

The motive for the shooting was not immediately clear.

Razo added that investigators planned to review surveillance videos from the entire area.

He urged the suspect to surrender.

"Unfortunately, the life of my 7 yr old little girl was taken selfishly by a unknown suspect".

"Because we will be looking for you, we will locate you, we will find you", Razo said.
