Texas Harris County Sheriff's Office releases composite sketch of 7-year-old's killer

A suspect has reportedly been taken into custody in connection with the shooting death of Jazmine Barnes, a 7-year-old Texas girl who was struck by a bullet while traveling in a auto with her family on December 30.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office announced early Sunday (Sunday evening NZ time) that Eric Black Jr. was charged with capital murder in the death of Jazmine Barnes.

The event, a fundraiser for the family, had another goal that organizers say is even more important: Keeping Jazmine's death on people's minds. "They were possibly shot as a result of mistaken identity".

Hundreds of people gathered in Houston Saturday as efforts intensify to find the person who killed Jazmine Barnes. The shooting occurred as the family was heading to the store.

Cardiff said on Wednesday it had started an investigation, led by chief executive Ken Choo. "I categorically refute them". And in response, Bellamy said today: " I am aware of allegations that have been made against me via the media ".

The Harris County Sheriff's Office in Houston, which is leading the investigation, said it's already working with the FBI and other federal agencies. Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha Washington, was driving with the children and was shot in the arm.

In the tweet, deputies said that the case has taken a "new direction", and that more information would be released "as soon as possible". A gunman drove up in what is described as a red pickup truck and opened fire on the auto, investigators said. Jazmine's mom, LaPorsha Washington says she was driving with her four daughters when a white man in a red pickup truck opened fire on their vehicle, shooting her in the arm and killing Jazmine.

During the event, people held up balloons, as well as signs saying: "Justice for Jazmine".

Jazmine's father Chris Cevilla talked to Isiah Carey about this tragedy, along with activist Deric Muhammad, attorney Lee Merritt, and Kisshima Williams, the mother of Avonta Williams.
