HOUSTON, TX - Police say carjacking suspects shot and killed a Houston mom, Jessica Lynn Mills as she was sitting inside her SUV with her two daughters and husband. It all started around 9pm when suspects reportedly carjacked a driver in a Jeep Commander at West Bellfort and Kirkwood. After that point, police say that the two black male suspects then sped off and crashed into Mill's Explorer SUV near a Walmart in Stafford.
The suspects then bolted out and fled the crash scene in Stafford. That's when Mill's husband who was driving the Explorer with the mom and his daughters inside decided to follow the suspects and get their license plate. Both vehicles then stopped near a Suitmart on Wilcrest and Southwest Freeway. The suspect then got out and opened fire on the family inside Explorer SUV--killing the 29-year-old mom and narrowly missing her two daughters, sitting inside the car. Mill's daughters are 4-year-old and 4-months-old.
Right now, police are intensifying their search for the suspects in the stolen Jeep commander. According to police, the shooter is described as a young black male, wearing a gray hoodie and black pants. Mills was taken to Memorial Southwest Hermann where she later died. Her distraught husband was interviewed after the tragic scene. He said about Jessica, "She was everything. She meant the world to me. Without her, I feel kind of lost in the world right now. She was my best friend. She was my soul mate. She was the mother of my children--everything I could hope for in this life."
Suspects were last seen in that stolen gray Jeep Commander with Texas license plate number CN5X057. If you have any information in this case, please contact Crime Stoppers--713.222-TIPS (8477)
