Sources are saying a shooting suspect is in custody for the shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.
ABC 13 Houston reports the investigation is ongoing with a possible second suspect.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office appeared to confirm the report on Saturday night when they tweeted the investigation has taken a “new direction.”

Jazmine was riding in the car with her mother, LaPorsha Washington, and other relatives when a white male opened fire on the car killing her and injuring her younger sibling and her mother.
A $100,000 reward has been offered for information on Jazmine’s killer.
Shaquille O’Neal and Houston Senior Police Officer Kenneth Miles covered the cost of Jazmine’s funeral service.
