A THIRD MAN HELD HER AT GUNPOINT, AFTER DRIVING A FEW BLOCKS AND — SHE JUMPED OUT OF THE CAR IN THE MEANTIME, SOME NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE SUSPECT POLICE BELIEVED KILLED TWO PEOPLE IN ROGERS PARK. DANA JOINS US LIVE FROM ANOTHER MEETING ON THE MURDERS AT THE BENARD OR ITS JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER. Reporter: TONIGHT, CHICAGO POLICE ARE TELLING ME THEY ARE REVIEWING NEW SECURITY VIDEO THAT THEY RECEIVED FROM BUILDINGS IN THE PAST 24 HOURS HOPING TO CATCH ANOTHER IMAGE OF THE SUSPECT. THEN THEY TOLD RESIDENTS 105 TIPS HAVE COME INTO TO THE DEPARTMENT. Reporter: CHICAGO POLICE CONTINUE TO SHOW THIS VIDEO OF A MAN BELIEVED TO BE A KILLER. TONIGHT, AT ANOTHER COMMUNITY MEETING, WITH AT LEAST 300 PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE. THERE IS NO OBVIOUS MOTIVE IN EITHER ONE OF THESE CASES. Reporter: THE POLICE SAY THE SAME GUN AND THEY BELIEVE THE SAME PERSON KILLED 73-YEAR-OLD DOUGLASS WATT AND 24-YEAR-OLD ELIYAHU MOSKOWITZ. BLOCKS APART FROM EACH OTHER IN ROGERS PARK. THE DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT SAYS UNPRECEDENTED 40 DETECTIVES ARE ON THIS CASE, ONLY BUT TENSIONS ARE HIGH. YOU DO HAVE A STRANGE FELLA WHO COMES ON YOUR BLOCK. WHAT DO YOU DO? WERE GETTING A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF CALLS AND EMAILS, PEOPLE UNDERSTANDABLY EXPRESSING FEAR. Reporter: ALDERMAN JOE MORRIS SAYS INCREASED POLICE PATROLS ARE USING SOME FEARS. OFFICERS ARE STOPPING AND QUESTIONING MEN WHO FIT THE GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE SUSPECT. IT’S ALWAYS A SENSITIVE CONCERN. BUT, I THINK AS LONG AS THE POLICE ARE RESPECTFUL WHEN THEY STOP AND INDIVIDUAL. THERE’S A GUY WHO WAS JUST MURDERED, EXECUTED. TWO CITIZENS WHO WERE LAW- ABIDING CITIZENS MINDING THEIR OWN BUSINESS. SO, I’M GOING TO SAY THE OFFICERS ARE DOING WHAT WE WANT THEM TO DO. Reporter: WITNESSES BELIEVE THE SUSPECT IS A BLACK MALE WITH A THIN BUILD AND A PRONOUNCED DUCK WALK. BUT IN IMAGES CAPTURED SUNDAY MORNING, THE ALLEGED SUSPECT IS COVERED HEAD TO TOE AND FOR THAT REASON, THE DEPUTIES SAYING THAT THING IS CERTAIN. I DON’T THINK WE’VE CONCLUSIVELY DETERMINED YET, THE COMPLEXION, THE RACE. Reporter: THE POLICE ARE NOT INTENTIONALLY RELEASING THE CALIBER OF THE GUN USED IN THESE MURDERS.
