NFL star DeAndre Hopkins Donating Playoff Check To Family Of 7-Yr-Old Shooting Victim Jazmine Barnes

“When I see Jazmine Barnes’ face, I see my own daughter,” NFL star DeAndre Hopkins wrote on Instagram following the tragic news of the 7-year-old’s death in a drive-by shooting in Texas.

Jazmine Barnes was killed on Sunday morning when a white male in a red pickup truck pulled up next to the family car and opened fire “totally unprovoked,” said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. The family — including a six-year-old and two teens – was on a coffee run at the time of the incident.

Jazmine’s mother, LaPorsha Washington, was reportedly struck in the arm during the attack. The 6-year old suffered cuts from shattered glass and the teens were uninjured.

Hopkins pledged to donate his playoff paycheck to the victim’s family.

“I am 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. #JusticeForJazmine #LoveOverHate,” he wrote on Instagram.

The Houston Texans wide receiver along with basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal and a Houston police officer are reportedly covering the costs of the little girl’s funeral.
