Suspected child killer charged as 7-year-old laid to rest

Harris County Sheriff's Office in Houston shows Larry D. Woodruffe. The Harris County Sheriff's Office said the 24-year-old Woodruffe was charged Tuesday Jan. 8 2019 with capital murder in the Dec. 30 slaying of 7-y

20, are charged with capital murder in the December 30 shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.

Authorities previously said that they believe Woodruffe was the person in an SUV who fired on Jazmine and her family as they drove to a store. He faces a charge of capital murder.

Authorities say Woodruffe and Black mistakenly thought they were attacking people they'd previously fought at a club when they fired at the auto with Jazmine and her family.

Her family initially believed the shooting was racially motivated.

The second-grader's funeral will be held at the Community of Faith Church in Houston, Texas, with visitation beginning at 10 a.m. and funeral services at noon.

Police say both he and 20-year-old Eric Black Jr. are responsible for her death.

Police arrested Larry D. Woodruffe, 24, on Saturday on a felony drug possession charge, but it wasn't until a few days later that prosecutors said they had enough evidence to charge him for the child's death. Prosecutors identified Larry Woodruffe as the second suspect in a court hearing Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reported. But the sheriff's office later received a tip from civil rights activist Shaun King that sent the case in a new direction. The girl's mother, LaPorsha Washington, was shot in the arm and the girl's 15-year-old sister was injured when the window shattered. The girl's killing prompted an outpouring of support for her family from celebrities and ordinary people across the country. He was arrested for marijuana possession and questioned by homicide investigators based on the tip, the affidavit says. Hopkins said it was to help the family with funeral costs, too, and hospital bills for Jazmine's mother or other family needs. The Sheldon Independent School District -- where Jazmine was a student at Monahan Elementary - has urged attendees to wear purple, in Jazmine's memory.

As I pointed out yesterday, it turns out the man pictured, who has not been identified yet, was apparently just a witness who fled the scene in his truck when he heard the shots.

"It had nothing to do with us, nothing to do with my uncle at all", said Hailey.

Just eight months later is said to have gone back to prison for misdemeanor trespassing.

Numerous speakers at the funeral said they hoped Jazmine's death would help fuel efforts to combat gun violence. Those in attendance included Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Gonzalez, who both spoke of reducing crime in the area.
