Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said he believes the family's initial description of the shooter was honest and the man in the red truck was likely a bystander who left the scene of the shooting. Afterward, dozens of purple balloons were released into the air as a symbol of the freedom wished for Jazmine as she rests in peace. LaPorsha Washington, Jazmine's mother, said she noticed a red or maroon pickup truck stop next to them at a red light.

Jazmine was running errands with her mother and three sisters on the morning of December 30 when a auto pulled up beside them and began shooting into their vehicle, authorities said.

The shooting drew national attention.

Texas authorities filed a capital murder charge Tuesday against a black man they believe fired the bullet that killed a 7-year-old black girl in a drive-by shooting her family initially believed was racially motivated. The source reportedly later provided an Instagram account name linking police to "EB" AKA Eric Black Jr. directly for arrest.

Hailey Cantrell says despite the arrests of two suspects in the murder case, as recent as Monday, there have been threatening comments on her Facebook page regarding her uncle, Robert Cantrell.

"I didn't think it was going to be this big", the child's mother said tearfully.

Black said the gun used in the shooting was at his home, the affidavit says.

The sheriff declined to name the second person, citing the investigation.

Court records did not list an attorney for Woodruffe. He has not been charged in connection with the shooting.

"I'm telling you, every time I see one of y'all reach out for me, I can hold my head up", she said.

Hundreds of mourners gathered Saturday outside the Walmart near where Jazmine was killed.

Jazmine's case has moved thousands of people across the country.

Social activist Shaun King and civil rights attorney S. Lee Merritt helped raise a $100,000 reward last week for any information leading to a break in the case. Houston Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins has said he'll donate his playoff game check to the family.

Numerous speakers at the funeral said they hoped Jazmine's death would help fuel efforts to combat gun violence.

"When I see Jazmine Barnes' face, I see my own daughter", he said.

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

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.
