Man charged with murder in death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes

07 January 2019

Jazmine Barnes is shown in a photo tweeted by the Harris County Sheriff's Office on December 31, 2018, the day she was fatally shot.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said authorities have identified the second suspect, who is also black, but would not say whether the person was in custody.

Police say they do not think Barnes' family was the intended target of the shooting, calling the death a possible "result of mistaken identity".

During Sunday's hearing, prosecutors said Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha Washington, had tried to drive to a hospital after the shooting, but one of her front tires had been shot out. The district asked parents to tell their children about Jazmine's death. It was not immediately known whether the suspected shooter has been arrested.

People attend a community rally for seven-year-old Jazmine Barnes in Houston, Jan. 5, 2019.

The same thing happened during introductions, as Spurs fans gave Green a standing ovation and then ramped up the boos for Leonard. When the trade was first announced, DeRozan posted on social media that he felt "betrayed" by the Toronto organization.

The sheriff's office added that they were still examining evidence to determine whether any other suspects could be charged.

"I have no tint on my windows or anything so you can see there is a mother-a black mother-with daughters, lovely children", Barnes's mother LaPorsha Washington, told CNN after the shooting.

Of note, at the time of the 7.30am shooting, the killer was initially described as being a middle-aged white man by the family.

Merritt, who had been working with Jazmine's family, said while there is no confirmation the shooting was racially motivated, "we do believe it was racially motivated in part because our nation at this moment is a highly racially charged society".

Community activists said the attack is similar to a 2017 incident in the area in which a suspect described as white shot into a vehicle carrying at least two black people.
