NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans Police are asking for the public’s help locating a person of interest who they say dropped a homicide victim off at a local hospital Tuesday night.

Officers were called to a local hospital Tuesday around 8:30 p.m. after a man arrived by private conveyance with a gunshot wound to his back. The victim later died of his injuries.

Through NOPD’s investigation, 27-year-old Kendall Willis was identified as one of three people dropping the victim off at the hospital from a silver sedan.

NOPD says Willis is not considered a suspect. Investigators want to interview him to get information about the shooting. They also want to learn the owner of the vehicle seen at the hospital.
