Police have given an official name for their person of interest.
Earlier this year, following the shooting death of rapper Young Greatness outside of a Waffle House in Louisiana, police released a grainy photo of a black male that they pegged as a person of interest in the murder of the rapper. This week, authorities have now named 35-year old Brett Scipio as a someone that they would like to talk to in connection to the crime as reported by Fox 8.
According to the outlet, Scipio is not wanted and has not been named as a suspect.
It was on October 29th that Greatness was killed at the Waffle house in on Elysian Fields in New Orlean. He died at the scene with one fatal shot to his back. Two suspects in the crime fled in the rapper's car and still remain at large. It is not yet determined if Scipio was the man captured in the previously-released photo.
Young Greatness, well known for his 2015 track "Moolah," signed with Cash Money Records in 2017 after being with the Quality Control label. His Bloody Summer mixtape arrived that same year.
Police are asking anyone with information on the location of Brett Scipio to come forward with information by contacting NOPD Homicide Detective Brett Mathes at 504-658-5300 or to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
