Authorities previously said that they believe Woodruffe was the person in an SUV who fired on Jazmine and her family as they drove to a store. A second suspect is also in police custody on drug charges, but is believed to be connected to the crime.

Authorities said Woodruffe, who was riding in a vehicle driven by Black, opened fire on December 30 and killed 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, who was in another auto with her family.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said Sunday that a white male who one of Jazmine's sisters saw at the scene was likely a bystander and potential witness to the attack.

The news came the day Jazmine Barnes' family and thousands of other people packed a church for her funeral. Woodruffe was arrested along with Eric Black Jr. on January 5 but was held on felony drug possession pending further investigation.

Police suspect that Black was driving the getaway auto in the drive by shooting, and he was caught after a routine traffic stop for not using his turn signal.

Woodruffe, 24, will be in court Wednesday morning.

Karl-Anthony Towns and the Timberwolves will be playing for interim coach Ryan Saunders presumably for the rest of the season. It's already been a whirlwind of a season thanks to Sunday's firing of Thibodeau and the Jimmy Butler trade on November 12.


Jazmine, who was 7, was riding in a auto with her mother and sisters on December 30 when someone in another vehicle shot her in the head.

Black was pulled over for not using his turn signal and was initially arrested for marijuana possession, according to details released in an affidavit in a Harris County court this morning. Gonzalez said that the tipster had approached writer and activist Shaun King days earlier, and King passed the tip on to police.

Washington, 30, was shot in the arm, while Jazmine's 6-year-old sister was hit by shattered glass. The girl's killing prompted an outpouring of support for her family from celebrities and ordinary people across the country.

Jazmine's white casket was draped with purple flowers.

"I'm writing this from heaven where I dwell with God above, where there are no more tears, pain or sadness, just eternal love".

Jazmine's mother and father were the first to speak at the funeral, and both of them started by expressing gratitude to the church and community.

Hailey says the truth is out and the case has nothing to do with her uncle.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner spoke at the funeral and called Jazmine "one of our children".
