According to TMZ, the Chicago police department has a lead in the investigation following the recent attack of “Empire” actor, Jussie Smollett. A surveillance video has reportedly surfaced but officers are still in need of witnesses to assist in locating the persons of interest.

Chicago authorities have revealed detectives found a camera angle showing multiple “persons of interest wanted for questioning” for their contribution to the hate crime.

Police also said to the outlet they would be releasing images of the persons of interest momentarily.

Smollett was hospitalized in Chicago after two unknown suspects approached him while he was walking, yelling out racial and homophobic slurs towards him. Police confirmed that the men began to beat him and pour bleach onto him.

One of the offenders is said to have tied a rope around Smollett’s neck, according to the reports. He is currently in stable condition.

The vicious attack occurred near Smollett’s Chicago residence. This is a developing story.
