HOUSTON — A man charged in the death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes last year is out of jail after posting bond, records show.
Eric Black Jr., 20, is charged with capital murder in the Dec. 30 drive-by shooting that killed Jazmine in east Harris County.
Police have said it was a case of mistaken identity. Black told investigators he and Larry Woodruffe thought they were shooting at someone they had been in an argument with at a club the night before.
But it was Jazmine sitting behind the driver's seat with her mother and sisters. She died after a bullet hit her in the head. Her mom, LaPorsha Washington, was shot in the arm and her 15-year-old sister was injured when the window shattered. Two other sisters in the car weren't hurt.
Black's bond was lowered to $150,000 last month after originally being set at $500,000. His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 16.
Woodruffe, 24, is the suspected gunman in this case. He is also charged with capital murder and is still in custody.
