Gunman opens fire on car after crash, kills 8-year-old

An 8-year old girl was fatally shot after a she was involved in a vehicle accident early Saturday morning.

De'Maree Adkins and her mother, Latoyia Thomas, 39, were going east on the intersection of West Fuqua Street and Sam Houston Parkway on their way home from the hair dresser. "She later died from her injuries at the hospital", said Detective David Stark with the Houston Police Department. "I pulled her out of the vehicle; I didn't even know she had been hit".

"She was a good girl, honor roll student, full of life".

After the crash, the driver of the Pontiac jumped into the sedan, Thomas said. Thomas said she was unable to slow down in time, and the cars collided with each other. "I looked over and thought she was trying to help", Thomas said.

Police said Thomas was not injured.

After the impact, a female driver in one of the cars suddenly whipped out a gun, and started blasting away, local police said. At first she thought DeMaree was still sleeping, but then she saw blood on her jacket. It is believed that Thomas and her daughter were not the shooters intended victims.

"I kept telling her, 'Wake up, wake up". "I want to go and pick out prom dresses for my baby". She told her daughter to stay with her, but her little body just went limp. It's not clear if they were racing or if it was a road rage incident, or something else.

In an emotional video posted on YouTube, Thomas said she missed her daughter and pleaded with those responsible to come forward.

'We just don't know'.

The white Pontiac that crashed into Thomas' vehicle was left abandoned at the scene of the fatal shooting.
