Multiple sources say black man in custody in Jazmine Barnes case

A suspect has reportedly been taken into custody in connection with the shooting death of Jazmine Barnes, a 7-year-old Texas girl who was struck by a bullet while traveling in a car with her family on Dec. 30.

A second suspect may be in custody as well, multiple sources told Houston’s FOX 26.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office issued a Twitter message saying only that the case had “taken a new direction,” with “persons of interest” being interviewed.

Sadly the media, based on the family’s declarations, had tried to exploit this tragedy as a hate crime, here, here, here though the child, mother and sister witness descriptions which described the shooter as white seemed “off”.
