Summerbell Brown was with her sister and parents Wednesday afternoon when she was shot. Police said her killer was driving a white Ford F-150 that was captured on surveillance video following the Brown family’s vehicle on a residential street.
“This nightmare is going to replay in my head forever,” Summberbell’s mother Taniesha Brown told ABC 15 Phoenix. “I can’t sleep. I hope she’s at peace.”
The pickup that was seized by police matched the description of the vehicle they have been looking for, FOX10 Phoenix reported Friday.
Police found it in a residential Phoenix neighborhood, the station reported.
The surveillance video footage was released Thursday, along with a suspect sketch, by police seeking help in locating the driver.
Police said the pickup involved in the shooting had dark tinted windows and damage above the rear wheel on the driver’s side, FOX10 reported.
Summerbell’s killer tailed the Brown family into their driveway, officials said.
“He was ready to start shooting,” her father Dharquintium Brown told ABC 15. “I got out of my vehicle, and asked him, ‘What’s going on?’ Because he stopped at my house. I asked him, ‘What’s up?’ And he just got to firing. He shot my car, and he shot me, and he shot up my house and he killed my daughter.”
Summerbell died of her injuries Thursday.
Brown had been driving. Summberbell’s mother and sister were not hurt, police said.
