DeAndre Hopkins pledges playoff game check to family of Jazmine Barnes

DeAndre Hopkins pledges playoff game check to family of Jazmine Barnes

Police have released a sketch of the man they believe killed a seven-year-old Houston girl who was shot dead in her family's auto this week.

"When I see Jazmine Barnes' face, I see my own daughter", Hopkins said on Twitter.

Earlier in the day, Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins said he was going to donate his paycheck from this Saturday's playoff game to help the Barnes family.

A gunman opened fire on Jazmine, her mother and three sisters as they traveled southbound on East Sam Houston Parkway around 6:50 a.m. on Sunday, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

LaPorsha Washington spoke from her hospital bed after she was injured and her 7-year-old daughter Jazmine Barnes was fatally shot outside of a Houston Walmart.

There have been suggestions that the attack on Barnes and her family in their auto outside a Walmart was racially motivated.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said, "There was nothing to indicate that the family did anything wrong in any way ..."

Gonzalez said the shooting occurred on a service road as the family was heading to a store. Officials said Williams was shot by a white man driving a pickup truck.

A distraught Washington earlier told KTRK-TV from her hospital bed that the gunman sped up after firing into her vehicle, only to pull in front and slow down before firing again. That could've been anybody in that position on the team.

No racial slurs were said during the attack, but Merritt said they still believe the shooting was racially motivated for a "litany" of reasons, including the area where it took place and the racial rhetoric now dividing the nation.

"So, whatever the motivation may be for someone to be able to call in with that tip and get some extra money we are all for it", Gonzalez said Wednesday.

Journalist Shaun King and Civil Rights Attorney Lee Merritt have come together to offer a $35,000 reward to find the murderer who shot and killed Jazmine Barnes on Sunday.

Washington said she kept passing out during the wait for help.
