The sheriff said he had never met the 7-year-old but noticed her "million-dollar smile" in photographs.

"It's our belief that it was totally unprovoked, whatever it was, and we're leaving no stone unturned".

Harris County, TX sheriff's deputies say five people were in a vehicle when an unidentified man began shooting at them for an unknown reason.

The image of the red, four-door pickup was captured shortly before the shooting occurred Sunday morning, Harris County sheriff's Lt. Christopher Sandoval told reporters. The mother, 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington, remained in a hospital Monday. A man driving a red pickup truck pulled up next to Washington's auto and started shooting into her vehicle and then sped away.

"Please keep this family in your prayers". "So, anyone who knows anything, please contact police dispatchers".
