News Release
Sunday, January 06, 2019

HOUSTON - Statement by Mayor Sylvester Turner on the arrest of the alleged killer of Jazmine Barnes:
"I want to thank the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and all law enforcement for their diligent work to identify and arrest a suspect in Jazmine Barnes’ senseless murder.

"The authorities worked around the clock to find the individual who is allegedly responsible for the heinous and unspeakable act of violence against an innocent child.

"This should serve as a warning to all violent offenders who prey on our community: The color of your skin, how much money you make - these things don’t matter when law enforcement will find you, eventually.

"I also want to acknowledge the outpouring of support  from across the country for the victim’s family and our community. It provided law enforcement with a sense of urgency and made Jazmine’s loved ones know they weren’t alone in their  time of grief. We share their deep sense of loss and anger. 

"It’s now my hope that justice will prevail and that Jazmine’s family will find some comfort knowing the alleged  gunman is off the street."
