Barnes was killed Sunday while riding inside a vehicle with her mother, LaPorsha Washington, and two sisters on their way to a convenience store, CNN.com reported.

'We didn't do anything wrong to this man. "It was something in his mind that he had planned on doing beforehand", Washington said during a news conference on Thursday afternoon.

Still, Houston-area activist Deric Muhammad can't help but draw a direct line and wonders if Williams' shooting were solved, "would Jazmine Barnes still be alive?"

Gonzalez said at the news conference that his investigators are not focused on whether Jazmine's killing was a racially motivated hate crime.

This is the man witnesses say murdered 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes on 12/30 as her family drove on the E. Sam Houston Pkwy frontage road at Wallisville Road.

Barnes was a 7-year-old second-grader that was shot and killed early Sunday morning in a drive-by shooting. Washington, 30, was shot in the arm, and she fled down Beltway 8 before making a U-turn to pull over and call 911. The gunman has been described as a bearded white man, possibly in his 40s, driving a red or maroon pickup.

"We're continuing to proceed with different strategies to try and find this coward of a killer", explained Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez at a Thursday night press briefing. Authorities released this photo in hopes of finding her killer. "But he's taking innocent lives and that's not fair".

Rangers Add Jermain Defoe, Steven Davis From Premier League
Rangers have beaten Sheffield United to sign former England, Sunderland and Portsmouth striker Jermain Defoe from AFC Bournemouth on an 18-month loan deal.

Her favorite song was "Wake up in the Sky" by Bruno Mars, Gucci Mane and Kodak Black, Washington said.

"It was like a look into his vehicle".

"The police got there and they were just asking: 'Who got shot and who I was beefing with?" Activist Shaun King and Merritt, the family's lawyer, have also raised $100,000 as a reward for information that leads to the killer's arrest.

Jazmine's death has prompted an outpouring of support for her family from people, celebrities and sports stars across the country.

National Football League player Deandre Hopkins has pledged his playoff game check to Jazmine's family to help cover expenses.

The Texans play the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, when a community rally for Barnes is also expected to be held, according to FOX26.

"I have 5-year-old daughter".

Jazmine's father, Christopher Cevilla, thanked the countless supporters who are trying to help. There's nothing at all that obligated him to do that, but he went and gave up the money anyway. His heart is going to finally get to him.
