HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities are searching for a driver who fired several shots into a car carrying a family in the Houston area, killing a 7-year-old girl and wounding the child's mother.
Investigators on Monday released a surveillance video image of a red, four-door pickup truck from which the driver fired gunshots Sunday morning .
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez has declined to speculate on what prompted the driver to fire into the car carrying 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, three of her sisters and her mother. Gonzalez says the shooting as "totally unprovoked."
Jazmine's mother suffered a gunshot wound to the arm and her 6-year-old sister was injured by shattered glass.
Jazmine's father appeared with Gonzalez at a Monday news briefing. He pleaded with the public to help find the shooter.
