HOUSTON-A man in a pickup truck pulled up next to a vehicle that was leaving a Houston-area Walmart parking lot and started shooting, killing a 7-year-old girl inside the auto and wounding the girl's mother, authorities said Sunday.

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. Washington was shot in the arm but survived her injury. Her 6-year-old daughter was wounded by glass fragments, while two teenage siblings are "shaken" and "devastated" but physically unharmed, authorities say.

Two teenagers and a younger girl were also in Washington's auto, Gonzalez said. The authorities said they are still investigating and trying to determine if the shooting was random or targeted. A man driving a red pickup truck pulled up next to Washington's auto and started shooting into her vehicle and then sped away.

The sheriff's office released a photo of the pickup truck from a surveillance video taken before the shooting.

Police in Texas are seeking a white man who pulled alongside a black family's vehicle and opened fire, fatally shooting a 7-year-old girl. A total of 5 occupants in the vehicle witnessed this innocent child, their loved one, shot and killed before their eyes.

Authorities say a motive for the shooting is not clear.
