HeadlineJan 09, 2019

In Houston, Texas, funeral services were held Tuesday for Jazmine Barnes, the 7-year-old girl who was shot while in a car with her mother and three of her sisters last week. A second man, 24-year-old Larry Woodruffe, was charged with capital murder Tuesday. Woodruffe is believed to be the shooter, while another man, Eric Black Jr., who was charged earlier this week, is said to have driven the car involved in the shooting. Police say the shooting was likely a “case of mistaken identity.”
