Suspect Charged With Murder In The Jazmine Barnes Killing In Houston

At least one suspect in custody in connection with murder of Jazmine Barnes in Walmart parking lot

He was arrested and is expected to be formally charged with capital murder on Monday.

The ABC13 report said Black returned the rental vehicle after the shooting and got a new one, which he was driving when he was arrested. Black is now being held at the Harris County Jail without bond and is expected to make his first court appearance tomorrow morning. Prosecutors said he was driving the vehicle that pulled alongside the Barnes family auto and that someone else shot into the auto. A second person, now in jail on drug charges, is also listed as a suspect in the shooting, according to CNN.

Black activist John Marsden, who had joined the search for Jazmine's attacker, said he had difficulty accepting that the suspect was black.

The source told police that the suspects had mistaken the vehicle Jazmine was riding in for somebody else's and that it was shot at "by mistake".

Jazmine's father, Christopher Cevilla, also thanked people for their support, and before Black's capture, he pleaded for the public's assistance in finding his daughter's killer.

The shooting took place at a stoplight while Jazmine, her mother and three sisters were on their way to the grocery store.

It is somewhat unclear how the initial report of a white shooter led to the arrest of two black men.

Hundreds of people gathered at a rally Saturday afternoon for the girl near where the shooting happened.

Police now say they do not believe the family was targeted and that the shooting may have been a case of mistaken identity. Her mother, who was also struck in the shooting, was treated for an injury to her arm.

Dexy Neal, 58, who is also black, was shopping with her family at the Walmart near the shooting scene Sunday and praised investigators who she had seen canvassing the area. Prosecutors said the 9mm handgun they believe was used in the shooting had been recovered from Black's home.

Also in the scene are Jon Snow ( Kit Harington ), Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and Ser Jorah Mormont ( Iain Glen ). She is greeted by Sansa Stark at the gates who tells her, " Winterfell is yours, your grace ", albeit a bit grudgingly.

A $100,000 reward has been offered to anyone with knowledge of the shooting.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office in Houston, which is leading the investigation, said it's already working with the FBI and other federal agencies.

"They wanted the right person to be convicted - not a white person", he said.

While it may be hard to understand the discrepancy, "it is imaginable that witnesses confused a fleeing bystander for the actual shooter", he later said on Twitter.

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

"It touched me deeply", Miles said.

Texans star DeAndre Hopkins dedicates his $29K check from Saturday's game to support her family.

Services for Jazmine are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday with a viewing at Green House International Church.

"It wasn't about race for me", said one resident, Tammetta Mares, a 41-year-old teacher's aide who is black and has three children, including a 7-year-old girl.
