A mother and her four daughters were going to get coffee Sunday morning from Joe V’s. The family were just passed the Walmart when the vehicle pulled alongside them. Jazmine, 7, and her mother were both shot.
LaPorsha Washington told ABC 13 about the last moments they had with Jazmine.
“As I turned around and looked back at the street, I heard shots start firing and they came through my window, broke my glass, and hit me in my arm. They sped off in front of us and the truck slowed down and continued to fire as he was in front of us. It was not fair. 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.”
One of her Washington’s daughters witnessed a heartbreaking tragedy.
“She said, ‘Momma, Jazmine’s not moving. She’s not talking.’ I turned around and my 7-year-old was shot in the head.”
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office looking for any residents in the area by the East Sam Houston Parkway around Wallisville road that have surveillance videos to help get a lead to Jazmine’s killer.
There is a GoFundMe page set up for the family to help with expenses.
Detectives are investigating the motive of the shooting and if it was random or targeted.
