Man charged with girl's drive-by murder

Man charged with girl's drive-by murder

In a statement early Sunday, homicide investigators with the Harris County Sheriff's Department announced the arrest of 20-year-old Eric Black Jr. One of those people, the accused driver of the getaway vehicle, Eric Black Jr., is in custody and faces a capital murder charge, Gonzalez said.

Black admitted to authorities that he had a part in the shooting after a tip led investigators to identify him as a suspect.

A suspect had pulled alongside a vehicle Jazmine Barnes was sitting in outside a Walmart and opened fire.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office told the Daily Dot that one suspect was the shooter, while one was driving the auto.

Black said he thought it was a vehicle he had seen the night before, he didn't realize who was inside.

"I have no tint on my windows or anything so you can see there is a mother - a black mother - with daughters, handsome children", Washington told CNN while police were searching for a suspect.

Lee said she planned to reach out to federal authorities to ask them to create a national manhunt for Jazmine's killer.

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.

In another, he named "two men that I reported" to the sheriff: one was Black and the other a man not yet named by police.

Hundreds of people rallied in support of the Barnes family this weekend.

In a brief clip released by CBS , Pelley can be seen questioning the general over the jailing of political dissidents. The interview was conducted by show veteran Scott Pelley while the Egyptian president was in NY on a recent visit.

Jazmine Barnes was shot in Houston, Texas, on December 30 after a suspect opened fire on the vehicle she was in with her family. Prosecutors said the 9mm handgun they believe was used in the shooting had been recovered from Black's home.

Jazmine died at the scene and her mother, LaPorsha Washington, suffered a gunshot wound to the arm.

The prosecutor said in Sunday's hearing that Black then agreed to a search of his residence, where police found a 9 mm pistol consistent with shell casings found at the site of the shooting.

The HCSO also took Larry Woodruffe, 24, into custody on a drug charge Sunday, but he has not yet been charged in connection to the case.

Before Black's arrest, police released a sketch of the suspect described as a white man in his 40s, based on information from Jazmine's mother and three sisters.

Regardless of any confusion, the family "wanted the right person to be convicted - not a white person", Merritt said.

While it may be hard to understand the discrepancy, "it is imaginable that witnesses confused a fleeing bystander for the actual shooter", Merritt tweeted.

Washington thanked everyone who came to honor her daughter, whose birthday is next month, she said. "I can get up in the morning".

The funeral and balloon release in remembrance of Jazmine's life is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at Green House International Church on 200 West Greens Road, Houston, TX 77067.
