New Orleans, La. -  New Orleans police released pictures Thursday of another person of interest and a vehicle of interest in the death of Officer Rodney Thomas.

The vehicle is believed to be a 2004 to 2006 white, four-door Toyota Camry. It has a rear spoiler and no markings on the sides. It was last seen at the garage Best of the Best Automotive and Sales at 2635 Gravier St. on the morning of July 7.

The subject in the photo is believed to have been the last person seen driving this vehicle.

Thomas was killed in a hit-and-run early on the morning of July 14 after he was involved in a minor traffic accident on the highrise and had stopped to check on the other driver. Three people have been arrested in connection with his death, and at least one other person of interest is being sought.
