HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Eric Black Jr. has bonded out of jail after being charged with capital murder in the deadly shooting of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes.
Black's $500,000 bond was lowered to $150,000 on June 24, just a day before he was released.
An investigation revealed evidence that corroborated the tip, authorities say, and Black was taken into custody in east Harris County without incident.
Black allegedly admitted to taking part in the shooting.
Larry Woodruffe, 24, was arrested in January. Sources tell ABC13 that officials believe Woodruffe is the shooter.
On December 30, 2018, Jazmine's mother was driving Jazmine and her three sisters southbound on the East Sam Houston Parkway feeder road near Wallisville Road at approximately 6:50 a.m. when they were fired upon by someone in another vehicle.
"I am grateful to our dedicated investigators, the partner law enforcement agencies that provided vital assistance, and tipsters from across the nation who pulled together to support our work to get justice for Jazmine," Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said. "Our work is not finished, but I believe the people of Harris County can take comfort in knowing we have made great progress."
LaPorsha Washington, Jazmine's mother, was injured during the shooting.
When the shooting was over, one of her other daughters made the devastating discovery.
"She said, 'Momma, Jazmine's not moving. She's not talking.' I turned around and my 7-year-old was shot in the head," Washington said.
The story has captured the attention of community members, celebrities and activists around the world.
