Police have released a sketch of the man they believe killed a seven-year-old Houston girl who was shot dead in her family’s car this week.
Jazmine Barnes was in the back seat of her family’s car with her three siblings and mother when the driver of a red pickup truck pulled alongside the vehicle and fired inside, killing her on Sunday December 30.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office has released the sketch of the suspect based on descriptions by Jazmine’s family.
The suspect is a white man with pale skin, blue eyes, a thin build and a mustache and is believed to be in his 30s or 40s. He was wearing a black hoodie at the time of the shooting.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a press conference on Thursday that the suspect could have changed his facial hair by now.
Jazmine’s mother LaPorsha Washington said the gunman looked ‘sick’.
Cops also released a short surveillance video from a nearby business of the killer in his red pickup truck shortly before the shooting, asking for people who recognize the vehicle to come forward.
A reward of 100,000 has been set for any leads to the killer.
Jazmine’s tragic death has caught national attention leading activists like Shaun King and celebrities like Gabrielle Union and Olivia Wilde to rally for her killer to be found.
The family was stopped at a red light near a Walmart at the time of the shooting.
