Jan 4, 2019

(Houston, TX) — On Friday, January 4, 2019, Congressman Al Green made the following statement regarding the murder of Jazmine Barnes:

“On Sunday, December 30, 2018, I learned of the tragic demise of 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes, which occurred earlier that morning. I offer my sincerest condolences to her loved ones for this horrendous occurrence. We cannot rest as a community until the man who shot and killed Jazmine Barnes is brought to justice. She was senselessly murdered. Her mother was shot in the arm, and now she is left to not only nurse a physical wound but to cope with the emotional traumas she and her other three daughters are experiencing since witnessing this tragedy. If you or anyone you know has any information about this incident, please contact local authorities at 713-221-6000 or 713-222-TIPS. Silence is not an option. This young girl’s murder cannot become simply another hashtag.”
