NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans police are looking for a man wanted in connection with the October fatal shooting of Theodore Jones, a locally born rapper known by the name Young Greatness.

A warrant has been issued Donald Reaux’s arrest on charges of obstruction of justice, conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice, and accessory to second-degree murder, according to an NOPD news release.

The 38-year-old man was previously named by NOPD as a “person of interest,” who may have information about the murder. However, investigators later determined Reaux played a role in the killing, although they did not provide additional details of his involvement.
