Second man charged with capital murder of Jazmine Barnes, 7

Second man charged with capital murder of Jazmine Barnes, 7

The Harris County Sheriff's Office said Larry D. Woodruffe, 24, is the suspected gunman in the drive-by shooting of Jazmine Barnes, who was killed December 30 while driving with her family to the grocery store.

Woodruffe, 24, is seen in a photo tweeted by the Harris County Sheriff's Office in Texas on January 8, 2019.

Her gleaming white casket had "Jazmine "Jazzy Fay" Barnes" printed in purple on the side.

He and Eric Black Jr, 20 - who authorities say acted as his getaway driver - have now been charged.

Woodruffe and Black mistakenly thought they were attacking people they'd previously fought at a club hours earlier when they shot at Jazmine and her family, according to authorities.

A police sketch of a light-skinned suspect initially led Barnes' family and some community leaders to describe the shooting as a white-on-black hate crime, but investigators shifted their focus as new leads were developed.

When Tasha K asked Carey if he ever told his mom about the abuse, he said he tried, but his way of telling her wasn't effective. The incident, which allegedly took place in May 2018, was reported by Timothy Savage to Henry County police.

Woodruffe and Black were both taken into custody on Saturday.

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.

Woodruffe, 24, will be in court Wednesday morning for the drug case and will have a preliminary hearing in the murder case on Thursday morning, according to online records. He was initially charged with felony drug possession pending further investigation. The girl's killing prompted an outpouring of support for her family from celebrities and ordinary people across the country. Hopkins said it was to help the family with funeral costs, too, and hospital bills for Jazmine's mother or other family needs. The suspect was apprehended after an anonymous tip passed along by journalist and activist Shaun King implicated two men identified as "LW" and "EB" in the shooting.
