Second suspect charged with capital murder in Jazmine Barnes homicide investigation

By:Paige Hubbard

Harris County Sheriff’s Office homicide investigators have filed a capital murder charge against Larry D. Woodruff, 24, for the Dec. 30 shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.

Jazmine’s mother was driving Jazmine and her three sisters southbound on the East Sam Houston Parkway feeder road near Wallisville Road at approximately 6:50 a.m. on Dec. 30 when they were fired upon by someone in another vehicle.

Investigators identified Woodruff and Eric Black Jr., 20, as suspects based on a tip. Subsequent investigation revealed evidence that corroborated the tip, and both men were taken into custody on Jan. 5 in East Harris County.

Black then admitted to taking part in the shooting and was charged with capital murder.

Woodruff was booked into the Harris County Jail on a felony drug possession charge, pending further investigation.

On Tuesday, on the basis of additional corroborating evidence, prosecutors with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office accepted a capital murder charge against Woodruff
