Eight-Year-Old Shot To Death On Sam Houston Parkway Early Saturday

Posted February 27, 2017

Police say an 8-year-old girl has been fatally shot after the vehicle she was in was involved in a auto crash in Houston.

Adkins and her mom, Latoyia Thomas were driving near the intersection of the Sam Houston Parkway feeder and Fuqua Street, when a speeding auto hit their vehicle. It's not clear if they were racing or if it was a road rage incident, or something else. Thomas said she was unable to slow down in time, and the cars collided with each other.

"The light was green, and as soon as I got to the light it turned yellow - I couldn't stop", Thomas said.

Latoyia Thomas told KPRC-TV the Pontiac's driver abandoned the wreck and got into the third vehicle, a dark, four-door sedan. Instead of offering any help, the woman allegedly started firing a gun at her vehicle.

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

According to police, the driver of the Pontiac jumped into the four-door sedan and fled the scene.

That's when another vehicle drove up, Thomas said. "I pulled her out of the auto; I didn't even know she had been hit". I laid her on the ground and when I looked at her jacket, I saw a blood stain. It is believed that Thomas and her daughter were not the shooters intended victims.

Thomas said the woman began firing at her and her daughter, who was in the backseat. They took my baby away from me, why?' Thomas said.

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