Jazmine Barnes

Questions emerge about the shooting death of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes who was gunned down as she sat in the family car with her mom and siblings near a Walmart in Houston, Texas early Sunday.

Jazmine's funeral service is planned for Tuesday, Jan. 8. NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal is covering the funeral expenses.

The shooting incident occurred around 6:30 am-7am on Sunday, Dec. 30. LaPorsha Washington told police she took her four daughters, including Jazmine, to a grocery store to pick up coffee for an uncle.

Washington, 30, said she was sitting at a stop light at Wallisville Road when a red pickup truck without a license plate pulled alongside her vehicle and the driver opened fire into her car.

"As I turned around and looked back at the street, I heard shots start firing and they came through my window, broke my glass, and hit me in my arm. They sped off in front of us and the truck slowed down and continued to fire as he was in front of us. It was not fair. It was not fair. He intentionally killed my child for no reason. He didn't even know her, he didn't know who she was," Washington told ABC13.

Washington was shot in the arm. Her 15-year-old daughter, Alxis Dilbert, and a 6-year-old daughter were injured by flying glass.

Washington said she wasn't aware that Jazmine was shot until her daughter Ebonee Dilbert, 13, told her Jazmine wasn't moving or talking.

Washington later said she knew her daughter was dead when she turned on the car's interior light to look at Jazmine who was seated behind her.

Instead of calling 911, Washington drove around until her daughter flagged down another vehicle.

Jazmine and her daughters gave police conflicting descriptions of the suspect. He was originally described as a white male in his 40s with a beard and a pot belly. He wore a red hoodie.

This description, plus a still image of the suspect's vehicle -- a red four door pickup truck -- were circulated to the media by Houston police.

On Thursday, police released a composite sketch of the suspect based on a new description provided by Alxis. She described the suspect as a "sick and skinny" white male, possibly in his 30s or 40s, with blue eyes and no beard. Instead of a red hoodie, he wore a black hoodie.

Social media users questioned how Alxis could see the suspect's eye color inside his darkened vehicle. The shooting occurred between 6:30am-7am. The sun rises in Houston at 7:17am.

Questions also surround the description of the suspect's vehicle.

suspect vehicle

Car aficionados on social media say the vehicle in the blurred surveillance image appears to be an older model single cab 2 door pickup truck -- not a four door extended cab pickup as was widely reported in the news media.

The motive for the murder is still unknown. There are rumors that the shooting was drug-related. Washington and Jazmine's father, Chris Cevilla, reportedly have 14 felony arrests between them.

LaPorsha Washington

A Gofundme account set up by the family has raised over $65,880 -- far exceeding the original goal of $6,500.

A reward fund created by transracial activist Shaun King and civil rights attorney Lee Merritt has grown to $100,000.

    It’s not gonna bring this baby back but please don’t let this be a drug deal gone wrong. This is so sad.

  • SpiceGirl

    Smdh......

  • smartchickfl

    Damn...yall were right smh.

  • violet_skyz

    My first thought was why was she at Walmart with 4 kids so early? Like that's a lot for coffee? And that's quite early to be getting kids off to the store...

  • Yup, I said it

    I wouldnt be surprised. Sometimes I really dislike human beings because they can be so evil.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Bad thing about telling lies is that you have to continue to tell them AND remember them in order to keep on lying???

    RIP Baby girl??

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    ??????????????SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE LIARS IN THE BACK.

  • Soda

    The truck pulled up on the side of her car, fired shots, and in the midst of all this chaos she noticed the truck had no license plate and that the driver had a pot belly. ?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    My antenna went up when they were able to give a description. If this was random and someone just started shooting, at what point are you able to see what the shooter look like when bullets are flying... How are you shot in the arm and not upper body if your in the car.. And first instinct is to jump out the car and franticaly check on your children NOT wait for one child to tell you the other isn't talking. I bet it wasn't even a white man...

  • Seldomseen

    Rip baby girl. It is a cold cruel world

  • KcoolMuziq

    I believe they owed drug money and it was a revenge shooting.

  • Society Has Changed

    Suspect activity.... “LaPorsha Washington told police she took her four daughters, including Jazmine, to a grocery store to pick up coffee for an uncle.”

    Now ain’t no uncle of mine going to be asking me to go pick up coffee with fo kids! I’m hoping maybe the uncle is ill or bedridden, to soften this up. However, I wouldn’t be taking no food/drink runs prior to 11:00 a.m.! This heffa lying her a$$ off!!!

    R.I.P. baby girl, because it will come to light!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Them chicks like that will do any and everything for some money steal lie and cross who ever and don’t care about the consequences untill they on the ground bleeding

  • Minkie Babie

    Yes when you live in the hood you notice everything. It’s so sad that the payoff here is so real to deflect. Why don’t white seven year olds get shot. Then to talk about felonies. Damn what they so scared of if the truth comes out. I guess there’ll be another natural disaster soon. Y’all gonna stop playing with the black women we are not black men

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Got dam! See I gotta pay more attention to detail but I did wonder how she was able to describe anything I was basing this off myself though I couldn’t imagine bullets flying into my car outta nowhere and being able to give a description UNLESS maybe o had already saw this person say at a stop light and I just happen to notice then and then they take off and start shooting. ????? Oh father god I hope this isn’t true.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    A drug deal at 7am with four kids in the car?

  • Sacha

    I thought the same thing. RIP Jazmine

  • Ebony Starr

    That's a lot of kids of different ages wanting to get up at dawn and ride to the store. It's hard to get that many kids up for school, in the morning.

  • Parent

    Not surprising if she was a dope fiend.

  • Listen2Me

    Is that Porsha in the photo? That doesn’t look like the lady that was in the hospital giving the interview (not that it matters). Can’t imagine what she’s going through. Needless to say...she’s probably lived a rough life. She had her 1st child at 14. I’m trying hard not to place blame on her...but something is not right. How could she see his belly in the truck? It’s just sad.

  • Listen2Me

    I know my first reaction would have been to close my eyes (I don’t know why I always do this) so I know that I would have probably only been able to tell them what kind of car it was and that’s because I’m a car fanatic.

  • HotInCleveland

    The whole story sounded fishy to me from the beginning. 7am coffee at Walmart with all 4 kids in tow...Truck with no plate...random attack. Here in Cleveland if the thugs wanna kill you, they steal a car, remove the tags, then shoot your a**. I just don’t know about this.

  • Listen2Me

    Especially with the oldest be 16. They could have all stayed home.

  • noluvlost

    Repeat this for they lying azzes

  • Listen2Me

    It’s possible; but why take the kids. (I know you can’t answer this; I’m just thinking out loud).

  • Listen2Me

    Thanks

  • Aquanymous

    I know that I may be reaching.... but I believe it may be the result of a domestic dispute that spilled over into the street. She may have had to leave the home with the children very quick and her boyfriend may have followed her shooting into the car. I was leary of her being able to describe the shooter in detail. Seems like she and her daughter may know the identity of the killer and fear retaliation. Far fetched maybe but u never know

  • tintin

    If she's lying...oh she gonna be vilified to the maximum, she gone be vilified along with all black ppl as usual. I hope whatever happened is true. Her daughters should have been able to see the shooter too im assuming

  • Parent

    Bad parenting. Sometimes the addiction is stronger than their ability to make logical choices.

  • Rainbowbelow

    Unless the uncle is crippled, he can get his own coffee, so something about this story is not smelling right...

  • Listen2Me

    Now this is possible. They (the kids) allegedly all had on pajamas. So were they going to stay in the car why she ran in to get the coffee? I hope the mother isn’t covering for someone she knows.

  • country57

    My thoughts exactly, she knows the killer.

  • Listen2Me

    Ok

  • the guest

    I’m sorry, the mother knows that man who did this.

    I don’t believe she was in on killing her daughter.

    But she knows that man who did this.

    Because it looks like she was being stalked by the killer.

  • the guest

    I said that from the start. When I saw that her murdered daughter’s dad is Latino or white, and a white man killed her child, something told me it’s too much of a coincidence that some random white man shot up her car. The man who did this was stalking her.

  • the guest

    I think she was being stalked and thought having babies and little ones with her wouid protect her.

  • the guest

    Exactly.

  • MsPam

    Y’all if this woman is lying about what happened to her daughter, I will lose faith in mankind.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    LaPorsha has a plethora of mugshots for felony arrests (I posted 2). She's only 30. Who was watching her kids while she was committing all those felonies?

  • pure_rachet

    Lots stinks: she had to get 4 kids ready just for someone else's coffee? She was shot but doesn't check her kids? After realizing her daughter is shot she doesn't call 911 or take her to the ER, she just drives around? Her story changed? I was skeptical from the get go.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think she knows the killer. She took the kids because she thought they wouldn't shoot with kids in the car. But thugs today are ruthless.

  • pure_rachet

    “LaPorsha Washington took her four daughters, including Jazmine, to a trap house to pick up a crack rock for an early morning binge. She was getting high in the Walmart parking lot when she was shot" - Fixed it.

  • speakinmymind

    I agree. Something in the milk ain't clean. How could anyone see his pot belly, eye color, etc. before sunrise. Even if it was slightly light outside, his eyes would still have appeared as dark circles in dim light. Also, he either had a beard or didn't. You can't see an imaginary beard.

  • TwitterFingerz

    Sorry for the mother's loss, but something doesn't seem right to me.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Nope pure black..another case in Atlanta when those guys kidnapped that couple and the girl was 9 month pregnant and the black robbers killed both of them and not a peep of protest after that.. it’s which way did they white folks go cause black people not on shit

  • TwitterFingerz

    And that damn early in the morning? He had to have coffee?

  • TwitterFingerz

    Then you knew your daughter had already died, so you flagged somebody down? The hospital still could've helped her. Not buying this.

    The timing raises more questions than anything. If an adult was present at home, why load up the whole crew, that time of morning unless you did not trust the adult (s) with your kids. I mean, I feel that. Sometimes the subconscious speaks. "It's not fair"..to me, that means that there is something in her mind that could of made it fair. "He didn't even know my child" you are certain...he didn't know the "child"...but did he know you. I love the Lord..he knows exactly what happened. Time reveals. Just please,
    If you know this Man, spit it instead of having a community on edge.

  • dontgetblocked

    Of course it was drug related. It's a shame that children were involved. Social services needs to move in to protect the other kids.

    Damn, here we go again. I hope they are not complicit just to get a GoFundMe. If so, they gotta go (die)! But while they were interviewing her, dad was just sitting there not looking at the camera emotionless. At least cry!! Sh@t scream out when they catch your azz, that's your azz!

    This is the first I’m hearing about an uncle as well. At first she said they were getting the coffee for themselves, then people started asking why little kids were having morning coffee, now an uncle drops from the sky.

  • Society Has Changed

    ??..... investigation solved!

  • dru and neil

    I agree, and everyone knows minorities don’t get to be individuals, that’s sociology 101, this will be a negative reflection for sure, and a lot of black men are going to have a field day with this too.
    I hope she’s not crying wolf. I thought it was odd when she was on the phone with CNN the other day and put the emphasis on her being a “black woman with black kids.” It’s like they were setting up a hate crime. Let’s hope she is being honest, please!

  • Renee26

    Sigh

  • Tlowe89

    She was probably the one buying drugs or owed him money.... that could be the reason why she’s being stalked

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    How could they see pot belly and all that from inside a car though? I guess. Condolences to the young lady. I'm a firm believer that nothing is random 99.9996% of the time. Can they trace back to Wal-Mart when she first arrived to see if the red truck was there? If not, where did this red truck suddenly appear from, guns blazin no less?

    Who else was in the truck? I ask because if he pulled in front of them, still shooting....Maybe he was shooting as he maneuvered in front of them. IDK.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Right. I don't like this random, out of nowhere, we never cross paths before --way of reporting stories. Yes, the world is a schitty place, but I don't want to believe a truck came outta nowhere for no reason and started lighting up this car.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Sweetie, I signed my faith away on Christmas Eve 1999. What are you waiting for?

  • Li-Wright

    Also, the description of the white male....BLUE eyes? How do you know he had blue eyes? And could it be he's a light skinned black male or Latino?

  • DroneRivers

    Such a sad loss. I really hope this story is on the up and up and they're not lying to cover for something else. It's hard enough as it is for Blacks to get fair media coverage and any kind of empathy and compassion. If this family is lying, networks like Fox and people of their ilk will lap that up.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    He has 8 kids. He doesn't have to cry cause the GoFundMe cheddar is still rolling in, tears or no tears.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Don't give any GoFundMe to this family. Funeral is already paid for. What else do they need?

  • Yup, I said it

    If truck is blasting shots around a Walmart alot of people will i see it, and call 911. Walmart parking lots are never empty and they are always in well populated areas.

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    Damn!! Since the funeral is paid for, they need to hold those funds.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    It said Shaq too. I don't know if both of them are covering funeral expenses but if that's the case, the GFM funds should be returned. The kid wasn't a provider. She's not leaving kids behind so there's no reason this family should keep the funds if the funeral is taken care of.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    This mom was in to some ish, obviously. I think ppl were looking for her and she had the bright idea of "hey, if I have my kids with me, ppl won't try to kill me", not knowing that criminals are ruthless and don't care about kids getting caught in the crossfire.

  • tia

    my mama and I said this lady was not on the up and up. If I am wrong, Lord please forgive me. Think she got her baby caught up in some shit.

  • TheWildChild

    This sounds very similar how the local media was insinuating the other day. The local media in houHous didn't even headline this story until day 2. The father was being questioned ? I mean interviewed looking rather suspicious. But, it has been revealed in Houston media that their we're 2 other incidents very similar, same vehicle description, previously reported but not rendering any fatalities. So the shady past parents have been excluded. ? Still don't seem right to wake up all your kids that early to go get a cup of coffee for Unc' ..... ?

  • TheWildChild

    ??? Exactly...that damn early in the morning !!!!

  • 11pink123

    There is no excuse for firing off in a car full of kids. None, don’t matter what her parents did.

    when your life is in immediate danger, the last thing you thinking of is what somebody look like or have on. Her details not being accurate make sense. Remembering every detail while being shot at does not make sense.

    I’ve beem in these types of dangerous situations in college and I can tell you, she remembers more than I did. I had a whole man break in my house with all the lights on, he stood right in front of me and I can’t tell you the color of his shirt, hair or nothing. I just know he was white.

    I’ve seen people shooting and I can’t tell you nothing but they race, every other detail was a blur.

    The point is, it’s not realistic to remember every detail in a situation like that. You would know if you ever been in any.

  • TheWildChild

    Nah ? ?? first she said she was at Walmart ? in the parking lot. We all know how cameras are everywhere within a mile radius of any ratchet Walmart ?

  • TheWildChild

    Exactly ? you know them older kids had cellphones attached to their life. I was wondering if she was arguing with the daddy and he shot into the car ? cause you know kids, will protect their parents no matter how ratchet they are.

    As a MOTHER... there is zero chance that I will take my kids out at that hour to run an errand. The older kids can care for the younger for a short run.

    If I don't trust those in the home... It would take an EMERGENCY to get me to take my kids out at that hour. A coffee run wouldn't do it.

    The fact that she did and this HORRIFIC attack occurred breaks my heart!
    I am angry as hell over this child being killed for no reason!

    If the mother was under attack... she needs to tell the truth!

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    The dad set up the GoFundMe and he mentioned that it's for funeral expenses. If the expenses have been covered, then the dad should do right thing and give back the money. Why should the ppls money be used to fund him and his family's lifestyle?

    Perhaps people would feel better about the money if there was someone responsible to make sure those college funds that you speak of were actually set up. Plus there needs to be away to ensure that the parents can't go through it all.

  • Bernard

    I think the cops knew the story was bullshit from the get-go, but had to pretend to go along with the blue-eyed-devil story while they worked the drug/gang angle.

    If the witnesses lied, will GoFundMe freeze the account and will Hopkins keep his playoff check?

    The media has been burned so often by these "racially motivated" crime stories that they seemed to have used a bit lighter touch than usual this time. They've even pointed out the numerous contradictions and odd behaviors of the witnesses.

    FIRST- WHAT MATTERS IS KILLERS ARE OFF THE STREET.

    SECONDLY- THIS BABY WILL GET JUSTICE.

    LASTLY- She probably did spot a man of that description and vehicle. You aren’t analyzing everything with kids and bullets. Yes they have the men but that doesn’t mean mom was an intentional liar. This woman has true pain in her eyes. Not acting I feel. For all we know they could’ve been two cars. IT WAS GANG RELATED. The police are deeply stressing that the family is not connected and the shooter has admitted they shot the wrong vehicle. He didn’t even know until he saw it on the news. He led them to the gun and all.

    Mom gets judged for being in car getting coffee.

    Mom gets judge for inaccuracies. Bullets flying. Randomly. Military men do this. EXTREMELY often. Yes I use the word. She may or may not be in full knowledge HOWEVER let’s not let these actions appear as a smoking gun in a case. What she did is common. What is uncommon is when a child killer immediately spills the beans. Especially high profile plus leads to the actual smoking gun. This is a blessing. For all we know mom could still be right and gang ties are covering up the real killer.

    Mom gets judges for having her children with her at an ok time.

    Mom gets judged for a past of criminal upset. ... when her child died. Of all times.

    Where's dad? The past criminal acts is normal...esp. for the police when they're doing investigations. They have to look at EVERYbody suspect.

    The shooter was black, and the mom was trying to make it out to be race related, when it was a case of mistaken identity.

    They described the guy perfectly to me...just failed to mention he was black. Whose idea was that I wonder?

    The 16-year-old said, "I'll never forget his blue eyes." You know she couldn't possibly see his eyes in the dark. Who told her to say that? Take one guess. ?

  • TMW

    It was a rhetorical question. That ain’t sh!t mom tried to capitalize on the death of her child. The epitome of ain’t sh!t. SMH.

    When will Black people learn to stop acting on impulse and wait for the facts?

    Many Black people became so upset not at the murder of a 7 year old child but you became upset at the accusation that he was White more than anything.Now that it turns out that he was Black all along,you gasp.I knew this story was off. You can just look at the jail booking photos of the mother and see that she was shady because in no way does the shooter look like a White man.

    They look nothing alike

    Girl How sway?? The dude not even the shooter... how girl ??? Do you take medication???

  • TMW

    I see a resemblance around the mouth area. And if he wasn’t the shooter and in the car, there’s more of a chance that he was seen. My opinion. I could say something about how asking me if I take medication is insulting, but have a good day.

  • HotInCleveland

    Seriously folks run away from buying life insurance like they run away from the police. I’m sick of folks

  • tomlogic2010

    Was not mistaken identity. Was deliberate falsification to obscure police from her and her 16yr old daughters botched drug deal.

  • bemetoo

    lol ok

  • gellie

    Oh, it's a whole LOTTA lies. But I actually thank this family because there is a bigger issue out here that we need to address. You know what all this attention and hoopla demonstrated to me...how much can be accomplished when we actually CARE. Unfortunately, black lives seem to only matter when another race harms us. Imagine if we did this EVERY time a black life was taken, regardless of the perpetrator??
