Two persons of interest in connection to the fatal shooting of local rapper Young Greatness are being sought by New Orleans police after the release of new surveillance video Friday.
New Orleans rapper "Young Greatness," known for his 2015 breakout single "Moolah," was shot and killed outside a Elysian Fields Waffle House.
The short video clip shows one man walking in front of a black sedan wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and khaki pants while another man is seen getting out of the car in the 2900 block of Elysian Field Avenue where the shooting took place Oct. 29.
The NOPD said one of the men seen in the video is being sought for questioning, but neither individual is wanted in the investigation.
