Police have charged Eric Black Jr. with capital murder in the Jazmine Barnes shooting death case.
Investigators say Black, 20, was identified as a suspect based on a top. He admitted to taking part in the shooting following his arrest, the Harris County Sheriff’s office said in a statement on Sunday.
“Investigators are continuing to pursue evidence that could possibly lead to other suspects being charged in this case,” the statement continues.
“Jazmine’s mother was driving Jazmine and her three sisters southbound on the East Sam Houston Parkway feeder road near Wallisville Road at approximately 6:50 a.m. when they were fired upon by someone in another vehicle.”
“At this time, investigators do not believe Jazmine’s family was the intended target of the shooting, and that they were possibly shot as a result of mistaken identity.”
“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,” HCSO said in a tweet.
