Forever Donatto: Your Spooky, Rain-Soaked Baby-Shooting Video Of The Day

Investigators have released a surveillance video of the drive-by shooting that resulted in the death of 11-month-old Forever Donatto August 13.

There's not much in terms of information about the 3 a.m. shooting in the 8300 block of Ponnel in northwest Houston, but the overall vibe is creepy and sinister enough.

Rain falls and various cars roll by. No gunshots are seen, but investigators have said a spray of drive-by gunfire struck the girl in front of her home.

Donatto ""and several other persons were inside a vehicle parked in the driveway at the above address when an unknown male suspect fired several rounds in the vehicle's direction, striking it several times. One of the bullets penetrated the back seat of the car and struck the child," HPD says.

She was transported to Texas Children's Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Still photos of the suspect vehicle can be seen at the end of the video.

Anyone with information on the suspect(s) and/or the wanted vehicle in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
