The Chicago Police Department has issued a statement with an update on their investigation into Jussie Smollett’s racist and homophobic attack.
The FBI has taken over the investigation related to the threatening letter Jussie received last week, but as far as the actual attack itself police have been canvassing the area looking for surveillance footage.
TMZ reports that police visited a Target store near where the incident happened and they were able to retrieve some footage. A source says the footage shows just one person — presumably Jussie — walking down the street.
Anthony Guglielmi, Chief Communications Officer, tweeted that the department is expanding its search radius after being unable to find video or photos of the alleged attackers or any vehicles.
