The NOPD is seeking to locate two subjects identified as persons of interest for questioning in the investigation of a homicide that occurred on July 17, 2020 in the 10200 block of Old Gentilly Road.

At about 9:00 a.m., the victim was discovered inside of a vehicle with gunshot wounds. The victim was declared dead at the scene, and the incident was classified as a homicide.

Through investigation, Jeremy Hicks (pictured at top, DOB: 01-01-1994) and Kevin Sturgis (pictured at bottom, DOB: 10-16-1998) have been identified as persons of interest in this ongoing investigation. While no criminal arrest warrants have been currently issued for these two persons of interest, detectives feel the two possess information pertinent to the ongoing investigation.

Additionally, warrants for DNA buccal swabs from each subject have also been obtained.
