A second black man has been charged in the fatal Texas drive-by shooting of a seven-year-old black girl, whose death her family had initially believed was racially motivated.
The Harris County Sherriff’s Office said 24-year-old Larry D. Woodruffe was charged on Tuesday with capital murder in the December 30 death of Jazmine Barnes in Houston.
Woodruffe was charged as Jazmine’s funeral took place.
Woodruffe and Eric Black Jr were both taken into custody on Saturday.
While Black was charged on Sunday, authorities did not charge Woodruffe until additional evidence had been collected.
Authorities say Woodruffe and Black mistakenly thought they were attacking people they had previously fought at a club when they fired at the car with Jazmine and her family.
Jazmine’s family had identified a white man as the gunman.
