A police sketch of the suspect was created based on interviews with the witnesses; the daughters of LaPorsha Washington, 30, who were in the auto Sunday morning in Cloverleaf, Texas when, they said, a white man in his 40s pulled up alongside their vehicle and began firing.
The sheriff's office said all evidence gathered so far supports investigators' strong belief that she and her family were innocent victims.
Authorities are seeking the public's help in locating a man in a pickup truck who pulled up next to a auto that was leaving a Houston-area Walmart parking lot Sunday and started shooting, killing Barnes inside the vehicle and wounding the girl's mother.
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. Jazmine's funeral is scheduled for Tuesday. He was believed to be wearing a black hoodie at the time of the shooting. The new direction? Both suspects are black - not white like earlier reports suggested, stirring racial motives on social media.
Barnes was riding in a auto with her mother, LaPorsha Washington of Houston, and her three sisters on December 30 at around 7 a.m. when a man in a red or maroon pickup truck drove up next to their vehicle and opened fire. They've worked on several cases together over the years, including the killing of Antwon Rose II, a black teenager killed by police outside Pittsburgh in June. The girl was black and the alleged shooter is described as a white man in a red truck.
Hundreds of people rallied in support of the Barnes family this weekend.

A Texas sheriff says authorities now believe that a man in a red pickup who was being sought in the shooting death of a 7-year-old black girl was actually just a witness.
The sheriff released an artist's sketch showing a thin, white man in his 30s or 40s with a 5 o'clock shadow.
The woman, Sherita Dixon-Cole, was a close friend of Lee Merritt, the same attorney who is working with Barnes's family, King wrote at the time. Deandre Hopkins pledged his game check from the Houston Texans' playoff game to assist and Shaquille O'Neal and another officer have donated a cashier's check to cover expenses.
"I've got a attractive angel up there watching over me", she said.
Deric Muhammad, a community activist who helped organise Saturday's rally, told the crowd that everyone there had a role to play "in finding justice for this baby". Mourners plan to release purple balloons - Jazmine's favorite color.
