HOUSTON – Houston Police Chief Troy Finner and homicide detectives were joined by family members Wednesday to make a plea to the public for additional information on the suspect or suspects involved in the fatal shooting of 5-year-old Khamaya Dior Donelson.

Finner announced that the reward for information on the suspects involved has been raised to $25,000 after Houston billionaire Tilman Fertitta offered an additional $20,000 to Crime Stoppers’ $5,000 reward.

The mother of Arlene Alvarez, a 9-year-old girl who was shot and killed when her family’s vehicle was struck after a robbery at a southwest Houston Chase Bank ATM drive-thru, attended Wednesday’s press conference to support Khamaya’s family.

What happened

According to Assistant Chief C. Hatcher, officers responded to multiple reports of a shooting in the 13500 block of Northborough Drive near Rushcreek Drive in the Greenspoint area around 1 a.m. Sunday.

Finner, who became emotional, said the mother was out late because she had to close the restaurant she worked at and had just picked up her children from a 24-hour daycare. He said she wanted to get her children ice cream before heading home.

Around 12:51 a.m., police that a vehicle driven by the mother came to a stop at a stop sign when a silver four-door sedan with four suspects inside approached the vehicle.

One of the suspects leaned out of the rear driver’s side window and began firing multiple gunshots toward a food store, police said. Watters’ vehicle was caught in the crossfire, according to police. Khamaya was in the backseat of her mother’s vehicle with her 8-year-old brother when they were both struck by a single bullet.
