NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The NOPD is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a person of interest for questioning in a homicide that took place Friday (Dec. 23).

That evening around 4 p.m. in the 700 block of Baronne Street, a shooting outside of a local Rouses grocery store claimed the life of local comedian and historian Brandon “Boogie B” Montrell.

Through their investigation, detectives obtained footage of the unknown female, pictured above, as a person of interest in the investigation.

The subject was at the scene at the time of the incident and left the location in the pictured gray/silver Honda sedan.

She is not a wanted suspect, but detectives believe she could have critical information in the case.
