The Harris County Sheriff's Office said 24-year-old Larry D. Woodruffe has been charged with capital murder in the December 30 deadly shooting of Jazmine Barnes.

Woodruffe, who has previous convictions for assaulting a family member and possessing a controlled substance, was arrested last week on suspicion of drug possession and later charged with Barnes' murder, according to jail and court records.

On Dec. 30, Jazmine Barnes was gunned down on a Houston freeway near a Walmart while in the vehicle with her family.

The case inflamed racial tensions after Jazmine's mother and multiple witnesses said they believed the man who killed young Jazmine was a white male.

The family of a white man wrongly accused of murdering a 7-year-old black child has revealed that they are receiving death threats in connection with the allegations.

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

Other speakers included Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee and Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, whose office is investigating the shooting and who told the crowd, "I look forward to the day where I can truly say rest in peace to Jazmine". Both suspects are black. LaPorsha Washington, Jazmine's mother, said she noticed a red or maroon pickup truck stop next to them at a red light. Woodruffe was previously being held on unrelated drug charges.

LaPorsha Washington, Jazmine's mother, told authorities that a auto pulled up next to theirs, firing a spray of bullets inside.


Investigators identified Black as one of two suspects in Jazmine's shooting based on an anonymous tip, according to an affidavit read aloud in court Sunday.

Black said the gun used in the shooting was at his home, the affidavit says.

"I'm writing this from heaven where I dwell with God above, where there are no more tears, pain or sadness, just eternal love".

"Let me tell you the story of the red truck and how it came to be the focus of this investigation". But the sheriff's office later received a tip from civil rights activist Shaun King that sent the case in a new direction.

Hundreds of mourners gathered Saturday outside the Walmart near where Jazmine was killed.

Reports say O'Neal and Houston Senior Police Officer Kenneth Miles brought a cashier's check to Jazmine's family last week, but he isn't the only superstar offering a hand.

More than 2,700 people donated to a GoFundMe set up for Jazmine's funeral expenses and family.
