This is just SICK!

Just a few days before the new year kicked in, a family is left to grieve the loss of their 7-year-old baby girl, Jazmine Barnes. A gunman in Texas driving a red pick up truck drove up to the car she was in with her family and began shooting.

Jazmine’s mother was in the car with her four daughters, going to Walmart. When the man opened fire, he fatally shot Jazmine and injured her mother and sisters. Police describe the killer as a bearded white male in his 40’s.

This horrific story has received national attention and caught the eye of activist Shaun King and civil rights lawyer Lee Merritt. Shaun has raised over $100,000 for information leading to the man who took an innocent 7-year-old’s life away.

During a news conference on Wed (Jan. 2), Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said, “we still don’t have any linkage to this family, so it still seems random.” Take a look at the news converage:
