A major twist in the killing of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes is breaking as the Harris County Sheriff says it has "persons of interest" in custody. Police say a tip led them to Black, who admitted to the crime.

However, the suspect is reportedly African American and the sheriff's office said that the shooting appears to be a case of mistaken identity. Washington was shot in her arm, and Barnes' 6-year-old sister sustained injuries from shattered glass.

A second suspect is also believed to be in custody in connection to the shooting that left Jasmine dead and her mother, LaPorsha Washington, wounded, KTRK ABC13 reported.

In its statement on Saturday, the sheriff's office says it continues to pursue evidence that "could possibly lead to other suspects being charged in this case". "As I turned around and looked back at the street, I heard shots start firing and they came through my window".

The Jazmine Barnes Homicide investigation has taken a new direction.

Black told investigators that he drove the vehicle used in the shooting while a man in the passenger seat opened fire, according to the affidavit.

Black, who was arrested Saturday night during a traffic stop, was charged with capital murder and jailed without bail.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzales described the suspect in a press conference on Thursday (Jan. 3).

Investigators released a sketch of the suspect, who was depicted as a white man in his 40s.

Family and community activists had said they believed the death was racially motivated, and investigators had been searching for a white man with blue eyes.

She says the man who opened fire into her vehicle, also shooting her in the arm, was a white man wearing a black hoodie, driving a red pick up truck who had pale skin and blue eyes.

It was still dark out the morning the shooting occurred, Gonzalez pointed out, and Jazmine's mother and sisters had just gone through a traumatic experience, which could have affected their perception of those devastating moments.

On Saturday, hundreds attended a rally in Houston calling for those responsible for Jazmine Barnes's death to be brought to justice.

Prosecutors say he was driving an SUV from which an unidentified passenger fired upon the auto Jazmine and her family were in on December 30.

During the event, people held up balloons, as well as signs saying: "Justice for Jazmine".

Shaquille O'Neal and Houston Senior Police Officer Kenneth Miles covered the cost of Jazmine's funeral service.

"I'm so happy to see all these faces from all over, and I thank you so much for doing this and coming together for my baby", Washington said with tears streaming down her face.
