In the days following the shooting, activists, first responders and celebrities are calling for justice for Jazmine. Helping the police in their investigation is activist Shaun King. He's made many tweets about the incident, and is even offering a reward of $100,000 to whoever turns in the shooter. The reward was originally $25,000 but thanks to donations from private parties, it has increased exponentially.

A 40 y/o white man w/ a beard in a red pickup truck pulled up on 7 y/o Jazmine Barnes and her family near a Houston @Walmart and shot and killed her and injured others.

When I see Jazmine Barnes' face, I see my own daughter. I'm pledging my playoff check this week to help her family with funeral costs and to support @shaunking @SherriffED_HCSO @SylvesterTurner in bringing this man to justice. On Saturday, I will be playing in your honor, Jazmine pic.twitter.com/oCRYSgfGO9— Deandre Hopkins (@DeAndreHopkins) January 3, 2019
