New Orleans, La.- Homicide investigators hope the public can help identify a man they believe could have critical information in a murder in the Garden District.

22-year-old Billy McCormick was gunned down inside a vehicle in the 400 block of Felicity Street Tuesday, August 27.

The NOPD says the person spotted in a photograph is not wanted for the murder -- they say he is simply a person of interest with whom  investigators would like to speak.

Earlier this week police, booked 23-year-old Dentri Lee with second-degree murder in McCormick's death. Investigators arrested Lee at a medical facility where he had gone to be treated for a gunshot wound to his hand.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the NOPD or call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
