HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities are asking Houston-area residents to review video surveillance for any images of a pickup whose driver they say fired into a car carrying a family, killing a 7-year-old girl and wounding the child's mother.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office on Monday asked for video that may help them track a red pickup that pulled alongside a car Sunday carrying Jazmine Barnes as it was leaving a Walmart parking lot.

Investigators say the driver of the pickup, described as a man in his 40s, fired into the car, striking Jazmine and wounding her mother, 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington.

Authorities say a motive for the shooting is not clear. They were expected to release additional information later Monday.

Three other juveniles were in the car at the time.
