A suspect has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.

Authorities in Texas have arrested a man accused of involvement in the death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, who was shot while riding in a auto with her family.

Law enforcement is still on the hunt for the shooter who killed 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes on Sunday (Dec. 30, 2018).

In a statement, it said investigators identified Black as a suspect after receiving a tip.

20, was charged with capital murder in the case, officials said.

"We gonna find him no matter what corner we have to turn, no matter what rock we got to go under, we gonna find you man", said her heartbroken mother, LaPorsha Washington, who was also shot in the attack.

Jazmine's great aunt, Elizabeth Perez, said she too was reassured, despite initial doubts that the description of the shooter could have been so wrong.

Jazmine was fatally shot in Houston on December 30 after authorities said a suspect pulled alongside the vehicle the girl was riding in and opened fire. Gonzalez said it was dark, the shooting happened quickly, and the red truck was probably the last thing seen by Jazmine's family.

Jazmine's death was publicized in part by the efforts of activist Shaun King, civil rights lawyer Lee Merritt, who represents the family, and numerous celebrities.

A $100,000 reward, raised in part by King, was offered for information in the Jazmine Barnes case. In hopes of locating a suspect, the Houston County Sheriff's Office has released a composite sketch of a man wanted in the recent murder.

Detectives have also arrested a second suspect Larry Woodruffe, 24.

Black appeared in Probable Cause Court Sunday morning. And NASA helped enhance this security video of the red truck the suspect was driving.

It is hard to understand how at least 4 independent witnesses mistook 2 black male suspects for 1 older white suspect.

Ms Washington, who was shot in the arm, tearfully recounted the attack from her hospital bed and urged the gunman to give himself up.

"The source said the suspects thought the complainant's vehicle was some other person's vehicle that they had seen earlier in the night and that they shot the auto by mistake", according to the complaint.

In its statement on Saturday, the sheriff's office says it continues to pursue evidence that "could possibly lead to other suspects being charged in this case".

There was no word on any charges against Woodruffe at this time.

They held up balloons and stuffed animals, as well as signs that said "Justice for Jazmine". "We need to tighten up and verify information on this case", he said. She and her mom were struck, while a sister was injured by broken glass, said Sheriff Ed Gonzalez in a press conference Monday.
