Suspects Arrested in Shooting Death of 7-Year-Old Jazmine Barnes

Second Suspect Charged With Murder In Shooting of 7-Year-Old Jazmine Barnes

Larry Woodruffe was charged with capital murder on Tuesday in the December 30 slaying of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.

The Harris County District Attorney's Office said it will decide later whether to pursue the death penalty against either Black or Woodruffe.

Jazmine Barnes was being remembered Tuesday at The Community of Faith in Houston. Black was charged with murder on Monday.

Authorities say Woodruffe and Black mistakenly thought they were attacking people they had previously fought at a club when they fired at the auto with Jazmine and her family.

Initially, law enforcement were searching for a white man driving a red pickup truck, after witnesses reported seeing him speed away from the scene.

Family members and friends held a funeral service for the girl in Houston on Tuesday, with her body carried in a white casket with flowers and the message "Princess Jazmine" sewn into the lid, according to the Houston Chronicle. Woodruffe was arrested along with Eric Black Jr. on January 5 but was held on felony drug possession pending further investigation.

Authorities said Black confessed to having a role in the shooting, which was believed to have been a case of mistaken identity in which Black and Woodruffe targeted the wrong vehicle in northeast Houston.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office announced on Tuesday that homicide investigators had filed a capital murder charge against Larry Woodruffe, who has been in custody for several days. Attorneys for Woodruffe and Black could not be reached for comment.

Jazmine was shot the morning of December 30 as she sat in the back seat of her mother's auto during a trip to Joe V's Smart Shop.

Black was pulled over for not using his turn signal and was initially arrested for marijuana possession, according to details released in an affidavit in a Harris County court this morning.

Jazmine died at the scene and her mother, LaPorsha Washington, suffered a gunshot wound to the arm. The girl's killing prompted an outpouring of support for her family from celebrities and ordinary people across the country.
