Police are no longer looking for the two men pictured above. Late Thursday night New Orleans detectives interviewed the person of interest in the baseball cap and short hair. He was booked for outstanding warrants. At this time authorities will not release his name due to the complexity of the investigation.

The man with the dreadlocks is no longer considered a person of interest, officer Frank Robertson said.

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – New Orleans police are searching for two additional men they believe have critical information related to the mass shooting on Bourbon Street Sunday.

The mayor’s office released the above photos Thursday adding, “please keep in mind these individuals are not suspects. They are persons of interest who may have information which may assist detectives in this investigation.”

The photos were captured by a low light camera which changed the color of the men’s shirts, the mayor’s office said.

On Wednesday the first man identified by police as a person of interest turned himself over to authorities. After homicide detectives questioned 20-year-old Justin Odom he was processed and booked on unrelated traffic and shoplifting charges.  He was released less than 24-hours later due to jail overcrowding.

Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of theses two individuals should call NOPD Homicide Detectives at 504-658-5300 or anonymously at Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
