  • Suspects Arrested in Shooting Death of 7-Year-Old Jazmine Barnes

Woodruffe, 24, is seen in a photo tweeted by the Harris County Sheriff's Office in Texas on January 8, 2019.

Reports say O'Neal and Houston Senior Police Officer Kenneth Miles brought a cashier's check to Jazmine's family last week, but he isn't the only superstar offering a hand.

Since the post went viral, even after two black men were charged in the murder, the Cantrell family has continually received threats.

Authorities say Woodruffe and Black mistakenly thought they were attacking people they'd previously fought at a club when they fired at the vehicle with Jazmine and her family.

Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha Washington, was in the auto with Jazmine and her three sisters near a Houston-area Walmart store on 30 December when a red pick-up truck pulled alongside them and a man inside opened fire.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office said Sunday that it suspects the shooting arose out of a case of mistaken identity.

Eric Black Jr., left, and Jazmine Barnes, right, are seen in photos distributed by CNN Wire.

Woodruffe was charged as Jazmine's funeral took place Tuesday afternoon, attended by thousands of people at the Community of Faith Church in Houston.

A tip helped authorities identify Larry Demetricus Woodruffe, 24, and Eric Black Jr., 20, as suspects in the December 30 shooting.

Black, who is also charged with capital murder, admitted taking part in the shooting.

Woodruffe, 24, will be in court Wednesday morning for the drug case and will have a preliminary hearing in the murder case on Thursday morning, according to online records.

Texans star DeAndre Hopkins donated his $29K check from last Saturday's game to support her family.

Police later corroborated King's tip through their investigation.

People spent the morning filing past Jazmine's open casket at the Community of Faith Church before a choir started the funeral just after noon. Purple was Jazmine's favorite color and many of those at the service were dressed in purple. Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha Washington, suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to her arm. Woodruffe was previously being held on unrelated drug charges.

"I just want everyone to back off", Hailey demanded.

They will have some help though, as National Basketball Association great Shaquille O'Neal has pledged to cover the funeral costs.

"I hear [on social media], 'Someone is going to rape, torture, and murder the women and children in your family, '" Hailey said. Those in attendance included Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Gonzalez, who both spoke of reducing crime in the area.
