The two other sisters were unharmed.

Her mother is 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington, Gonzalez confirmed on Sunday. Another daughter, 6, was injured by shattered glass.

A Texas sheriff has released the names of a daughter and mother who were shot when a man in pickup truck pulled up next to the auto they were in and opened fire.

Jazmine's father, Christopher Cevilla, who appeared with Gonzalez at Monday's news briefing, pleaded with the public to provide relevant tips to authorities so that an arrest can be made.

The suspect is still on the run in a red pickup truck that fled the scene. The gunman was described only as a bearded white man, possibly in his 40s, wearing a red hooded sweatshirt. "A total of 5 occupants in the vehicle witnessed this child, their loved one, shot and killed before their eyes".
