He said: "I feel we're a couple of results away from having the flawless six months, if you like". "You saw the two sides to us today".

"Please keep this family in your prayers", Gonzalez said in a Facebook post. The suspect, who authorities are describing as a white male in his 40s, fled the scene in a red truck. One, 6, was injured by shattered glass, and the two others were uninjured, KHOU reported. "A total of 5 occupants in the vehicle witnessed this child, their loved one, shot and killed before their eyes".

Razo says the other girls inside the auto are "shaken" and "devastated".

It wasn't clear what triggered the shooting.

The gunman's motive remains unknown.

Razo added that investigators planned to review surveillance videos from the entire area. "He's not human", the relative said of the suspect.
