The Harris County Sheriff's Office say 24-year-old Larry D. Woodruffe was charged Tuesday with capital murder in the December 30 slaying of Jazmine Barnes.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office announced on Tuesday that homicide investigators had filed a capital murder charge against Larry Woodruffe, who has been in custody for several days.

News of the charges against Woodruffe came the same day that hundreds of mourners gathered for Jazmine's funeral at The Community of Faith Church in North Houston.

Barnes was in a auto with her mother and her three sisters as they were leaving a Walmart parking lot in Houston late last month.

Authorities previously said that they believe Woodruffe was the person in an SUV who fired upon Jazmine and her family as they drove to a grocery store.

Authorities initially described a suspect in the attack as a white male, leading to fears that it may have been a hate crime.

As NPR reported, "Prosecutors say Black and an accomplice mistook the family's auto for that of someone they had gotten into an argument with the night before".

Police say the killing arose from a case of mistaken identity and that the family was not deliberately targeted.

But Saturday, investigators arrested a man who looks nothing like the initial eyewitness descriptions.

Woodruffe, 24, will be in court Wednesday morning for the drug case and will have a preliminary hearing in the murder case on Thursday morning, according to online records. Washington and her 6-year-old daughter were injured but Jazmine died at the scene.

Woodruffe has six prior convictions, including for assault, drug possession, and illegal possession of a firearm as a felon, Houston station KHOU reported. As the service began, Jazmine's mother told her family, "Y'all ready?"

Black said the gun used in the shooting was at his home, the affidavit says. Police found six other purses in his vehicle, and he was charged with three felony counts of robbery, fraudulent possession of ID, and evading arrest.

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.

The heartbreaking murder of Jazmine captured the attention of the country, including community activists and celebrities, as the search for her killer went on for a week.

"I just want everyone to back off", she said.

A GoFundMe account set up to help cover funeral costs has raised more than $81,900 from almost 3,000 donors.

Her funeral was paid for by retired National Basketball Association player Shaquille O'Neal and veteran Houston police officer Kenneth Miles.

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins pledged his National Football League playoff game check to Jazmine's family.
