NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

New Orleans police have named a second suspect in a double shooting that claimed the lives of two brothers.

Jonathan Evans, 18, is accused of gunning down Kendrick and Kendred Bishop inside of a vehicle in the 4800 block of Bright Drive on May 25.

Officers responded to gunfire in the area around 5:45 a.m. They found both brothers shot to death inside a black Kia sedan.

During the investigation, the NOPD received a Crimestoppers tip connecting Evans to the homicide.

Earlier this week, his alleged accomplice, Widner "Flow" Degruy, 23, was also named a suspect in the fatal shooting.

Detectives were able to obtain surveillance that shows Degruy and Evans possibly running from the scene and making a purchase at a nearby store.

Degruy is wearing a dark, hooded shirt and Evans is seen wearing a hat and short pants.
