A manhunt began after the Dec. 30 murder of 7-year-old Jazmine, who was fatally shot when a suspect opened fire on her family’s car. Her mother, 30-year-old LaPorsha Washington, and her three sisters were also inside the car at the time.
Gonzalez said Wednesday the attack “could potentially be race related.” Jazmine was black, and the suspect was initially reported to be a white man in his 40s.
Activists, celebrities and local community leaders called for justice in the killing, and a $100,000 reward was put on offer for information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
