NEW ORLEANS — Three people were arrested in connection to the shooting death of a New Orleans rapper outside a Waffle House last year.

The New Orleans Police Department says a grand jury indicted Donald Reaux, Donny Maxwell and a juvenile after 34-year-old Theodore Jones, also known as "Young Greatness," was killed in the early hours of Oct. 29, 2018.

Reaux was arrested by the St. John the Baptist Sheriff's Office SWAT team Thursday. Maxwell was arrested in the 3600 block of Garden Oaks Drive. The unnamed juvenile was already in custody on unrelated charges.

The three individuals were indicted on charges of second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, armed robbery, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice. Reaux was also indicted for illegal possession of a firearm by a felon.

In December, police named Reaux as a person of interest in the investigation.

On the night of the shooting, officers found Jones with a single gunshot in the 2900 block of Elysian Fields Avenue. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jones had a 14-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son.

"You wouldn't expect that coming happening with him,” his friend and fellow rapper P Town Moe told Eyewitness News at the scene. “Dude wasn't into nothing but his music and his daughter … Wasn't into nothing else man.”

Jones was born in New Orleans but moved to Houston after Hurricane Katrina. Police say Jones was in town for a funeral.
