HPD INVESTIGATORS TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO JONATHAN HUNTER!

WANTED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SHOOTING OF 3 YEAR OLD GIRL!

Police are asking for help from the public to find a second suspect wanted in questioning for the fatal shooting of a 3-year-old girl during a carjacking attempt.

Johnathan Hunter, 19, also known as Johnathan Barnes, has not been charged in the murder of Charissa Powell.

A capital murder charge was filed against Alton Charles Barnes, 24, who was held without bond on Thursday at the Harris County Jail. He was taken into police custody on Tuesday.

Police say that Powell was shot and killed when two men attempted to carjack her father at the Live Oak Bend Apartments on Sunday afternoon.

Powell’s younger brother was also injured by bullet fragments during the shooting.

Police say the parents and the children were in their vehicle, at an apartment complex, when they allegedly were targeted for the car’s expensive custom rims.
