Black Lives Matter Activist Shaun King Implies Innocent Man Committed Murder

Second suspect identified in shooting of 7-year-old report says

The Harris County Sheriff's Office announced on Tuesday (January 8) that a capital murder charge was filed against Larry Woodruffe in the shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.

After a week-long manhunt, amplified by the help of social awareness of the case on Twitter, police have arrested and charged Eric Black Jr.

Woodruffe was charged as Jazmine's funeral took place Tuesday afternoon, attended by thousands of people at the Community of Faith Church in Houston.

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

Authorities previously said that they believe Woodruffe was the person in an SUV who fired upon Jazmine and her family as they drove to a grocery store.

Though initial reports, civil rights leaders, and racial activists framed the murder as a racially-motivated hate crime, the suspect, like young Jazmine, is black.

According to police, Black said the shooting was a case of mistaken identity. Surveillance video showed a red pickup driven by a white man at a nearby stoplight just before the shooting, but the driver was not involved, according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. But before those arrests were made, the police and the family both believed the shooter was a white man in his 40s.

During the funeral, Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha Washington, read a poem one of her aunts had written from the point of view of the little girl. The duo - both men were both taken into custody on Saturday - were identified as suspects "based on a tip", officials said.

Trump's address sparks debate inside, outside TV networks
But much of the debate centered around whether or not it is appropriate to give the president a forum to lie to us on television". As of Tuesday morning, all the major cable and broadcast networks have confirmed that they will carry the Democratic speech.

Then in 2015 he was caught with drugs and a day after a judge ordered a community supervision a woman living with Woodruffe reported he had choked her. Jazmine, who would have turned eight next month, was shot in the head and killed.

Prosecutors say they found a 9mm handgun, believed to be the murder weapon, when they searched Black's home.

"I am grateful to everyone", she said, her arm in a sling from an injury she suffered in the shooting.

"Let me tell you the story of the red truck and how it came to be the focus of this investigation". Jazmine's two teenage sisters were not injured. Gonzalez said that the tipster had approached writer and activist Shaun King days earlier, and King passed the tip on to police.

"Every time I see one of y'all reach out for me, I can hold my head up", her mother said.

"When Jazmine Barnes was killed I pledged to find who killed her".

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