King led the charge to find the killer of Jazmine Barnes, a 7-year-old girl whose family auto was gunned down in Houston on December 30.

Both Eric Black and Larry Woodruffe were arrested on Saturday as the result of a tip-off, Harris County Sheriff's Office said.

News of the charges against Woodruffe came the same day that hundreds of mourners gathered for Jazmine's funeral at The Community of Faith Church in North Houston.

Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha Washington, was in the vehicle with Jazmine and her three sisters near a Houston-area Walmart store on 30 December when a red pick-up truck pulled alongside them and a man inside opened fire.

Prosecutors say Woodruffe and Black mistakenly thought they were attacking people they'd fought at a club hours earlier when they shot at Jazmine and her family.

First pediatric flu death reported to NJ Department of Health
From Dec. 23 to 29, 2019, the province reported 64 new influenza cases, including one death and one ICU admission. Although the season has already begun, there is still time to get the flu shot.

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. But before those arrests were made, the police and the family both believed the shooter was a white man in his 40s.

Woodruffe, 24, will be in court Wednesday morning for the drug case and will have a preliminary hearing in the murder case on Thursday morning, according to online records.

Police say Larry Woodruffe, 24, killed Jazmine Barnes after he fired into her mother's auto on 30 December.

Jazmine was struck in the head by a bullet and died at the scene. But while the latter quickly admitted to his involvement in the drive-by attack, Woodruffe was initially booked into the Harris County Jail on felony drug possession pending further investigation, officials said.

Prosecutors say they found a 9mm handgun, believed to be the murder weapon, when they searched Black's home.

Investigators identified Black as one of two suspects in Jazmine's shooting based on an anonymous tip, according to an affidavit read aloud in court Sunday.

The heartbreaking murder of Jazmine captured the attention of the country, including community activists and celebrities, as the search for her killer went on for a week.

"I'm telling you, every time I see one of y'all reach out for me, I can hold my head up", she said.

Social activist Shaun King and civil rights attorney S. Lee Merritt helped raise a $100,000 reward last week for information leading to a break in the case.
