8-year-old girl shot, killed after surviving vehicle crash


An 8-year-old girl was shot to death after a crash on West Fuqua Street near Sam Houston Parkway, police said.

The accident happened at the intersection of W. Fugua and S. Sam Houston Parkway around 3 a.m.

DeMaree Atkins was transported to a local hospital by paramedics, where she was later pronounced dead.

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

After the crash, authorities said the driver of the sedan got out of the vehicle and opened fire, hitting Atkins. 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 of the gunwoman. Her mother, whom police did not identify, was uninjured. "She didn't. She was only eight", Thomas told KPRC. That was when Thomas saw there was blood on her daughter's jacket. She told her daughter to stay with her, but her little body just went limp. "I want to go and pick out prom dresses for my baby".

"I love you and I wish I could hug and kiss you. comb your hair", she said crying.

Police said they don't know why the woman was shooting, but said both mom and daughter were not her intended targets.

'We just don't know'. And she said that before the sedan drove away, a woman in the vehicle fired at her and her daughter. "I wanted to see her get married". She continued traveling, too late noticing that the white Pontiac was "coming from another direction at a high speed".

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