Multiple sources say black man in custody in Jazmine Barnes case

A suspect sketch and clearer video of the man police believe shot and killed 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes on Sunday has been released and the nation as well as Harris County deputies want the man found.

"They were quiet, but strong", sketch artist Lois Gibson said of the sisters, who cried after seeing the drawing.

Late Saturday (local time), the sheriff's office said on Twitter that the investigation had "taken a new direction".' The post did not elaborate, and the sheriff's office did not immediately respond to phone messages.

"She said, 'Momma, Jazmine's not moving". The shooting occurred moments after the family departed a Houston-area Walmart.

Barnes, who was sitting behind the driver's seat, died at the scene.

No money can make up for the loss of a child, but National Football League star DeAndre Hopkins says he hopes the donation of his playoff game check to the family of Jazmine Barnes will show how much the community supports them. People held up balloons and stuffed animals, as well as signs that said "Justice for Jazmine". We've been going through some things that nobody really knows. "So once I determine who did it, and where this vehicle is, then we'll understand motive a little bit better". Officials also said investigators are looking into the possibility that others could be charged in the case.

DeAndre Hopkins, a wide receiver for the Houston Texans, also donated a game check to support Barnes's family, according to KTRK.

A $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.

Deric Muhammad, a community activist who helped organise Saturday's rally, told the crowd that everyone there had a role to play "in finding justice for this baby".
