A 20-year old man has been charged with the murder of seven-year-old Jazmine Barnes from Houston, Texas, who was shot in the head last month while travelling in a auto with her family.

After almost a week of investigating, the Harris County Sheriff's Office announced the charge early Sunday morning against 20-year-old Eric Black Jr.

Police have said they are looking into various leads after a composite sketch of the alleged gunman was released on Thursday. Black is a 20-year-old African-American man.

"I am told that Larry Woodruffe and Eric Black Jr. shot & killed Jazmine Barnes in drive by shooting, believing they were shooting someone else from a rival gang that had nothing to do with Jazmine Barnes".

Investigators were continuing to "pursue evidence that could possibly lead to other suspects being charged", the statement said.
