#Roommates, sources are reporting a break in the case of #JusticeForJazmine.
@abc13 in #Houston is reporting that one suspect is in custody for the fatal shooting of 7-year-old #JazmineBarnes, but the investigation is ongoing with a possible second suspect. According to sources, the suspect in custody does not resemble the sketch that was released earlier this week.
#HarrisCountySheriff’s officials took to #Twitter tonight to say the investigation has taken a “new direction.” “The Jazmine Barnes Homicide investigation has taken a new direction. Detectives are in the process of interviewing persons of interest. More details will be released as soon as possible. #hounews #JusticeForJazmine,” the tweet said.
Activists and celebrities have joined the cause by donating money to the young girl’s family for both a reward for the capture of her killer and to cover funeral costs. Local activists suspect the shooting was racially motivated and that young Jazmine, along with her mother and sisters, were targeted because they were Black.
Authorities have been attempting to track down the shooter, who they described as being white and in his 40s, since last weekend.
We’ll keep you posted on any updates and our prayers continue to be with Jazmine’s family! #JusticeForJazmine
