Authorities say they're pursuing various leads they've received since releasing a composite sketch of the suspect.

The victim's family believes her death was racially motivated. "As I turned around and looked back at the street, I heard shots start firing and they came through my window".

Jazmine was fatally shot in Houston on December 30 after authorities said a suspect pulled alongside the vehicle the girl was riding in and opened fire. The shooting occurred moments after the family departed a Houston-area Walmart.

"I didn't see anything but shattered glass and bullets coming toward my auto", the girl's mother, LaPorsha Washington, told the Associated Press earlier this week.
