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

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

A second suspect, 24-year-old Larry Woodruffe, was also charged in connection to the deadly shooting.

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

Jazmine was in the family's vehicle with her mother and three siblings when she was gunned down in a drive-by shooting on December 30. Black was charged with murder on Monday.

Authorities said Woodruffe, who was riding in a vehicle driven by Black, opened fire on December 30 and killed 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, who was in another auto with her family. But before those arrests were made, the police and the family both believed the shooter was a white man in his 40s.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said he believes the family's initial description of the shooter was honest and the man in the red truck was likely a bystander who left the scene of the shooting.
