$35,000 Reward Offered for Information On 7-Year-old Girl’s Killer


A manhunt is underway in Houston, Texas, for a gunman who shot and killed a 7-year-old girl during a possible road rage incident. ABC reports Jazmine Barnes was with her mother and 3 sisters in the family vehicle when she was shot around 7 a.m. Sunday morning.

LaPorsha Washington, 30, told police she was taking her four daughters, ages 6 to 16, to Joe V’s to pick up coffee on Sunday morning when they passed the Walmart off the 15400 block of Wallisville, when a man in a red pickup truck drove by and opened fire into the car. Washington, who was shot in the arm during the incident, described the shooter as a white male in his 40s with a beard and wearing a red hoodie.

Washington said she didn’t realize Jazmine was hit until another daughter alerted her.

She said, ‘Momma, Jazmine’s not moving. She’s not talkingI turned around and my 7-year-old was shot in the head.

Washington pulled over and called 911. She was hospitalized with a gunshot wound and is expected to recover. Her 6-year-old daughter suffered a minor injury.

Jazmine was pronounced dead at the scene.

Activist Shaun King and civil rights attorney Lee Merritt offered a $35,000 cash reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

The activists say a similar unprovoked incident happened at that same Walmart in 2017. According to ABC News, a man named A’Vonta Williams was shot multiple times by a white male driving a pickup truck. That shooting remains unsolved.

The activists say they believe the two shootings are related. But the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said the weapon ballistics, vehicle, and description of the suspect don’t match Sunday’s shooting incident.

According to CrimeOnline, the suspect fled in a red, 4-door pickup truck with no license plate.

Police said they will use all resources to catch the suspect. A grainy image of a red pickup truck was released to the public on Tuesday.

“We’re going to use all resources available to bring this killer to justice,” Major Jesse Razo told reporters. “I urge you, whoever did this, you know who you are. Please turn yourself in now — because we will be looking for you, we will locate you, we will find you.”

George Zimmerman Shot in the Face During Road Rage Incident

Trayvon martin’s killer, George Zimmerman messed with the wrong one this time. The acquitted murderer was reportedly shot in the face in a road rage incident near Orlando, Florida.

FOX 35 TV reports Zimmerman and two men argued during a road rage incident in Lake Mary, Florida.

One of the men produced a handgun and shot Zimmerman. FOX 35 reports Zimmerman received a minor flesh wound.

Zimmerman famously shot and killed 17-year-old Martin as the Miami teenager cut through a subdivision on his way to his father’s girlfriend’s apartment. Martin was carrying a can of iced tea and a bag of Skittles when he died.

Zimmerman claimed self-defense under Florida’s “stand Your Ground” law — even though Martin was unarmed.
