UPDATE: AS OF 1/3/18 THE REWARD IS $100,000!!!!
A $35,000 reward is being offered by journalist/activist Shaun King and civil rights attorney Lee Merritt to find the person who shot and killed Jazmine Barnes on Sunday!!!!
7 year-old Jasmine was in the car with her three sisters along with her mother, on the way to the store, when a man pulled up alongside their vehicle and opened fire on these innocents young ladies.
Her mother, 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington, said she was taking her daughters to the store to get coffee when someone started shooting out of nowhere.
Jazmine died at the scene and her mother, who was also shot, was hospitalized with injuries.
The gunman has been described as a bearded white man in his 40s, who was wearing a red, hooded sweatshirt. Investigators released a photo of his truck, described as a 4-door red pickup truck. The make and model is not known.
“It’s our belief that it was totally unprovoked, whatever it was, and we’re leaving no stone unturned,” Sheriff Ed Gonzalez of Harris County told reporters. “We’re going to leave every motive out there as a possibility. There was nothing to indicate that the family did anything wrong in any way. They were simply just driving along the service road when this happened to them.”
I am completely heartbroken!!!!! This young mother along with her daughters were targeted, shot and killed and it is imperative that we find the man responsible for this hate crime!!!!!
There will be a community rally held for Jazmine this Saturday! Scroll all the way down for details on location and time.
