CRIMESTOPPERS TIP HELPS NOPD IDENTIFY A SECOND SUSPECT IN THE MURDER INVESTIGATION OF TWO BROTHERS

Posted on: June 8, 2015 | Posted in: Breaking News

The NOPD has obtained an arrest warrant for 18-year-old Jonathan Evans, who is wanted in connection with the fatal double shooting that claimed the life of 22-year-old Kendrick Bishop and 18-year-old Kendred Bishop. Both brothers were gunned down inside of a vehicle in the 4800 block of Bright Drive. The incident occurred on Monday, May 25, 2015.

Around 5:45 a.m., officers responded to a call of shots fired in the area. When officers arrived, they found both brothers shot to death inside of a black Kia sedan. Both victims died on the scene.

During the course of the investigation, Detective Gregory Johnson received a Crimestoppers tip connecting Evans to the murder.

Earlier this week, Evans’ accomplice, 23-year-old Widner “Flow” Degruy was also named a suspect in the shooting.

Detective Gregory Johnson was able to obtain surveillance that depicts Degruy and Evans possibly running from the scene and making a purchase at a nearby store. Degruy is seen in the video wearing a dark colored hooded shirt while Evans is wearing a hat and short pants. The surveillance video can be seen below.
