Ya’ll I know you have been watching this story and as the news of a ‘new direction” rolls in I thought it would be best to share the update.
According to CNN:
Detectives investigating the drive-by murder of 7-year-old Houston girl Jazmine Barnes say the case has taken “a new direction” and they are interviewing “persons of interest.”
Barnes was riding in a car with her mother LaPorsha Washington and three sisters last Sunday at around 7 a.m. when a man in a red or maroon pickup truck drove up next to their vehicle and opened fire.
Jazmine was fatally shot in the head.
Washington, 30, was shot in the arm, while Jazmine’s 6-year-old sister was hit by shattered glass. Jazmine’s two teenage sisters were not harmed.
A sketch of the suspect compiled from descriptions from Jazmine’s mother and three sisters showed a white man in his 40s with a 5 o’clock shadow and a hoodie.
Late Saturday the Harris County Sheriff’s Office tweeted that their homicide investigation had taken a new turn.
“Detectives are in the process of interviewing persons of interest. More details will be released as soon as possible.”
The word online is that it might be gang-related and that they *do* have someone in custody, but there are other related parties. The man in custody is a black man.
This is just so sad, rest well princess.
