Yesterday a 3 year old girl was KILLED . . . by carjackers trying to steal her father's rims.
A hardworking man, his wife and two children (a 3 year old and a 1 year old) were driving down the road in Houston when his car was approached by two men. The two men pulled out GUNS and ordered the man to give them the car.
The man immediately reached back to pull his children out of their car seats. But before he could do so, the MONSTERS opened fire and shot 3 year old Charissa Powell in the chest killing her.
Here is more to the story, courtesy of Click2Houston:
"We know there were several people out here when the shooting happened," said Sgt. David Ferguson with the Houston Police Department. "(We're) trying to find people who will come forward that has information about this suspect, that they maybe saw the suspect do the shooting, that has a name for us, that's willing to talk to us and give us that information."
Detectives are looking for two men in connection with the killing. Both are black and in their mid-20s. The shooter was described as 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall and 140 to 160 pounds with a dark complexion and matted, bushy hair. He was armed with an AK-47, officials said. The other man is 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tall and 200 to 220 pounds with a light complexion. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, black shorts and a black cap.
Police are also looking for two vehicles used in the killing. One was described as a blue, silver or white 1995 or 1996 Buick LeSabre. The second was described as a 1996 or 1997 burgundy Ford Taurus.
