Dallas police investigators released images Thursday night that they say show the gunman in the freeway murder of Dallas rapper Mo3.

The 28-year-old performer, whose real name was Melvin Noble, was gunned down Nov. 11 on Interstate 35E near Marsalis Avenue.

The images appear to show an armed man emerging from a black car -- possibly a Chevrolet Camaro -- wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and blue jeans. Police say the gunman chased Noble on foot and opened fire, hitting Noble and a bystander who was sitting in his car. The bystander was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Noble was taken to a hospital where he died.

No arrests have been made and a motive behind the shooting remains unclear. Police were not able to say whether the shooting was related to road rage or if it was a targeted attack.

Noble had more than 800,000 followers on his Instagram page and was best known for a 2019 remix of the song “Errybody,” with Baton Rouge, Louisiana, rapper Boosie Badazz.
