The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's office says they are still looking for the person or persons responsible for the death of a 7-year-old child who was shot while traveling in a car with his family. 

Spokeswoman Casey Hicks says it happened after a shopping trip over the weekend when the family of five was in motion and another car passed in the other lane.

"They heard what sounded like a pop, and that's when they pulled over and realized two of their children in the backseat had been shot," said Hicks.

She said one child was was grazed and she's going to be okay, but 7-year-old Terrez Coleman of Baker was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hicks says they are so far not determined a motive for the incident, but so far it appears to have been a random shooting. She says they are looking for the public's help in this tragic case.

"If there is anyone out there that knows something or may have seen something suspicious, please contact Crimestoppers," said Hicks.
