Man authorities believe shot Texas girl charged with murder

Man authorities believe shot Texas girl charged with murder

Both men were taken into custody on Saturday after police received a tip from activist Shaun King, who said one of his "confidential informants" had identified the suspects.

"We are still heartbroken at the thought of a seven-year-old innocent child losing her life in such a violent way", Deric Muhammad, an organizer of a rally in Houston to demand "Justice for Jazmine", said in a statement Monday.

Woodruffe has six prior convictions, including pleading guilty to choking a girlfriend, drug possession and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to court records.

The news came the day Jazmine Barnes' family and thousands of other people packed a church for her funeral.

Christopher Cevilla, Jazmine's father, said he is angry and sad about his daughter's passing, but he believes that her death has helped fix broken relationships across the country.

There were flowers with pops of purple, Jazmine's favorite color.

Jazmine was struck in the head by a bullet and died at the scene.

Her family initially believed the shooting was racially motivated.

As a white male with blue eyes, Robert Cantrell resembles the police sketch the Harris County Sheriff's Office released last week.

The family had described the shooter as a white man driving a red pickup truck, prompting concerns by them and activists that her death was a hate crime.

The shooting drew national attention.

Jazmine, who was 7, was riding in a auto with her mother and sisters on December 30 when someone in another vehicle shot her in the head.

"I hear [on social media], 'Someone is going to rape, torture, and murder the women and children in your family, '" Hailey said.

But it turned out the family was mistaken; the white man they saw at the scene of the crime was a bystander who fled because he didn't want to be shot as well.

Hundreds gathered Saturday to honor Jazmine outside the Walmart near where she was killed.

Police later corroborated King's tip through their investigation.

A GoFundMe account set up to help cover funeral costs has raised more than $82,000 from almost 3,000 donors.

Retired NBA star Shaquille O'Neal and National Football League player DeAndre Hopkins each made sizable donations to pay for the funeral.

"When I see Jazmine Barnes' face, I see my own daughter", he said.
