Man arrested for death of 7-year-old

"The detectives stopped by last night ... they said they had two guys and that the gentlemen were black", Washington told CNN affiliate KTRK.

Some community members initially believed that the shooting may have been racially motivated.

Police say there is another suspect involved.

Washington, 30, was shot in the arm, while Jazmine's 6-year-old sister was hit by shattered glass. Jazmine Barnes was in her mom's auto on Sunday heading to the store when a gunman opened fire.

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.

Investigators say have not yet determined a motive, including whether race might have played a role. (DOB: 10/10/1998) for the December 30 shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.

But King and Gonzalez's timelines raise questions because both continued disseminating information suggesting that the suspect in the shooting was white.

The sheriff's office filed charges of Capital Murder with the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

Authorities want to talk to the person in the red pickup to get his account of the crime, Gonzalez said.

The father of a 7-year-old black girl who was fatally shot as her family drove to a grocery store in Houston says he's relieved an arrest has been made in his daughter's death. Police say they found marijuana in the vehicle. Black is African-American.

The prosecutor added that the source, who communicated with the police via email, said Black and Larry W. did not know they had shot into the auto carrying the 7-year-old until they saw the story on the news later that day.

Jazmine's killing prompted an outpouring of support for her family from celebrities and ordinary people across the country. At the time, authorities had said it showed a white man in his 40s.

During a court hearing early Sunday, prosecutors said Black admitted to investigators that he was driving a vehicle in which a passenger opened fire on the auto Jazmine was in. "Because when we looked at the cameras they saw the red pickup truck and the gentleman in it and it was a white guy".

Many will be relieved at the announcement of the arrests of suspects. "As police talked with him about the drugs, police reportedly received a tip about suspects with the initials "EB" and LW" being responsible for the shooting, according to ABC News.

An investigation tip corroborated evidence before officials took Black into custody in Harris County without incident, according to the news outlet.

During Sunday's hearing, prosecutors said Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha Washington, had tried to drive to a hospital after the shooting, but one of her front tires had been shot out. The post did not elaborate, and the sheriff's office did not immediately respond to phone messages. Almost a thousand people rallied on Saturday near where the shooting happened, The New York Times reports. Houston Texans star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins said he would pledge his playoff check to help the family and the effort to find the suspect.
