Police said they are looking for Adonis “Shaddy” Dudley, 41, who they believe shot a man May 19 three times at the corner of Chef Menteur Highway and Dale Street.

Detectives say Adonis’ brother, 31-year-old Donald Dudley, drove to the scene before the shooting to bring his brother a gun. After the shooting, police said Adonis supposedly gave Donald the gun back. That’s when Donald fled the scene in a white Mustang, police said.
