Second Suspect Charged in Houston Girl's Death

The Harris County Sheriff's Office said Larry D. Woodruffe, 24, is the suspected gunman in the drive-by shooting of Jazmine Barnes, who was killed December 30 while driving with her family to the grocery store.

The man believed to have shot and killed Texas 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes in a drive-by shooting late last month was charged Tuesday with capital murder. Both suspects remain jailed.

Woodruffe was charged as Jazmine's funeral took place Tuesday afternoon, attended by hundreds of people at a Houston church. The girl's killing prompted an outpouring of support for her family from celebrities and ordinary people across the country.

Woodruffe and Black are not believed to have meant to target Jazmine Barnes and her family and may have thought they were shooting at someone else, the Harris County Sheriff's Office has said.

But Alonso is keen to see the 18-year-old remain at Stamford Bridge and flourish as a Chelsea player. But at the end of the day he decides about his future.

Woodruffe, 24, is seen in a photo tweeted by the Harris County Sheriff's Office in Texas on January 8, 2019. In a May Facebook post and tweet, King publicly named and accused a Dallas police officer of sexually assaulting a civil rights attorney during a traffic stop. The tip implicated Woodruffe and Black in the shooting. The suspect was apprehended after an anonymous tip passed along by journalist and activist Shaun King implicated two men identified as "LW" and "EB" in the shooting.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said he believes the family's initial description was honest and the man in the red truck was likely a bystander who left the scene of the shooting.

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. Attorneys for Woodruffe and Black could not be reached for comment. In one case, he pleaded guilty in 2017 to trying to choke a woman he was dating.

Prosecutors have said they may seek the death penalty in the case. Jazmine's two teenage sisters were not injured.

Pandya is now with the Indian team in Australia and his response, released to a section of the media in Sydney , spoke of regrets. The 25-year-old took to social media to post he "may have got a bit carried away with the nature of the show".

Jazmine's short, white casket could be seen covered in flowers as pallbearers rolled it into the church ahead of the funeral. Purple was Jazmine's favorite color and many of those at the service were dressed in purple. "Her mother and the girls never saw the shooter- they looked up and saw this red truck with a white man driving it, peeling off..."

"I just want everyone to like, back off", she told the station. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm just outside of sight.

"Let me tell you the story of the red truck and how it came to be the focus of this investigation".
