20, was arrested Saturday evening and faces a capital murder charge, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Police now say they do not believe the family was targeted and that the shooting may have been a case of mistaken identity.

People from across the country - including activists and celebrities like Gabrielle Union, Olivia Wilide and Ava DuVernay - had been trying to help with the investigation since the December 30 drive-by shooting.

Jazmine's mother, LaPorsha Washington, was driving the girl and her three sisters on the E. Sam Houston Parkway feeder road near Wallisville Road in northeast Houston just before 7 a.m. when someone in another vehicle began shooting at them.

Lee Merritt, a national civil rights attorney working with Jazmine's family, said there were no updates in the search on Saturday.

Jazmine, 7, was killed last Sunday in a drive-by shooting near Houston.

"His conscience is finally going to get to him after he sees my child's face go across (television screens) so many times. We have to find out for all the little other Jazmine who are out there that could be in danger as well".

Woodruffe and Black allegedly shot Barnes due to gang retaliation in a case of mistaken identity, according to KTRK.

Police have not confirmed the race of the suspects. The killer has not been found, despite a $100,000 reward for information leading to his arrest, announced by social activist Shaun King.

According to a report from ABC13, citing court documents filed in the case, the suspects thought it was another vehicle when they opened fire last week on the auto leaving a Houston-area Walmart parking lot. Prosecutors said the 9 mm handgun believed used in the shooting had been recovered from Black's home. Jazmine was struck and killed by the gunfire.

"The source said the suspects thought the complainant's vehicle was some other person's vehicle that they had seen earlier in the night and that they shot the auto by mistake", according to the complaint obtained by KPRC-TV. "Our work is not finished, but I believe the people of Harris County can take comfort in knowing we have made great progress".

Police tweeted: 'The Jazmine Barnes Homicide investigation has taken a new direction.

The shooting prompted widespread outrage, with hundreds of people gathering at a rally to demand "Justice for Jazmine".

"I've got a lovely angel up there watching over me", she said. 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.
