vehicle, at that location, was assaulted by five or six unidentified males during that assault one of the males pulled out a gun and while the victim watts on the ground shot the victim twice. right now we don't have any motive. we don't know if it is a potential hate crime, if it was robbery, we really don't know. the investigation is too early in the investigation to tell. >> reporter: so this is what police were looking for. not only any other witnesses, any video, but they do know this, somehow, obviously, from some witness, that they didn't detail. but the key witness they think may be a man seen dropping keisha off in the park, just before this happened. and they want that man to come forward. unfortunately, when the police said that, in the news conference, they didn't say to the man come forward and we will not bus you for ac job for prostitute. if that's the case, they're obviously not out to make cheap little minor advice bus, they want to crack this major crime and maybe that's why
that man isn't coming forward because he is figuring i did something wrong, i don't want to get in trouble, i don't want anybody to know. but perhaps police will keep him anonymous, and keep him off the books if he comes forward. so that's what they are looking for right now. and that guy may be scared to come forward, too, knowing the person he was just with was savagely brutally murdered, chris, lauren? >> good perspective, thank you. >> thousands every federal inmate set to be released last month part of measure to reduce the prison population. >> the prisoner being let out, serving drug sentences, more than 5500 inmates will go free in november. and eventually, tens of thousands will be eligible for release. the mass release was triggered by a federal commission, which lowered maximum sentences for drug offenders last year. reform advocates, rooted in the 1980s, with "war on drugs". >> federal prisons are 40% over crowded, ex or want costs, the unfairness of send ends from the 80s and 90s, to
