Larry Woodruffe, 24, was charged with capital murder on Tuesday in Harris County District Court, after Eric Black Jr., 20, was charged with the same crime over the weekend.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office announced on Tuesday that homicide investigators had filed a capital murder charge against Larry Woodruffe, who has been in custody for several days.

Woodruffe was charged as Jazmine's funeral took place Tuesday afternoon, attended by thousands of people at the Community of Faith Church in Houston.

Jazmine was running errands with her mother and three sisters on the morning of December 30 when a auto pulled up beside them and began shooting into their vehicle, authorities said.

Authorities initially described a suspect in the attack as a white male, leading to fears that it may have been a hate crime.

Authorities say Woodruffe and Black mistakenly thought they were attacking people they had previously fought at a club when they fired at the vehicle with Jazmine and her family. Surveillance video showed a red pickup driven by a white man at a nearby stoplight just before the shooting, but the driver was not involved, according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. The source reportedly later provided an Instagram account name linking police to "EB" AKA Eric Black Jr. directly for arrest. Attorneys for Woodruffe and Black could not be reached for comment. "Her mother and the girls never saw the shooter- they looked up and saw this red truck with a white man driving it, peeling off..." Woodruffe was previously being held on unrelated drug charges. Her mother was shot in the arm. The suspect was apprehended after an anonymous tip passed along by journalist and activist Shaun King implicated two men identified as "LW" and "EB" in the shooting.

Police later corroborated King's tip through their investigation.

Prosecutors say they found a 9mm handgun, believed to be the murder weapon, when they searched Black's home.

The heartbreaking murder of Jazmine captured the attention of the country, including community activists and celebrities, as the search for her killer went on for a week.

Just eight months later is said to have gone back to prison for misdemeanor trespassing.

Texans star DeAndre Hopkins donated his $29K check from last Saturday's game to support her family. O'Neal and Houston Senior Police Officer Kenneth Miles brought a cashier's check to the family last week to pay for the funeral.

A GoFundMe account set up to help cover funeral costs has raised more than $82,000 from almost 3,000 donors.
