Right now, hoover police are continuing the shooting death investigation of a veteran in the Lake Cyrus community.

33-year-old Jonathan Gilotti was found shot to death, outside his Park Side Circle home. Investigators believe that thieves, breaking into cars, shot the former army lieutenant.

Home surveillance systems have already led to one big break in the case. Now, police are looking at more surveillance video to track down suspects.

"We have had a couple of residents that have come forward, video they provided did prove to be very valuable," explains Captain Gregg Rector with the Hoover Police Department.

Rector says home surveillance video helped police get a description of the vehicle that left the scene. The older model Ford F-250 pickup was found Tuesday. "We're certain that that's the same truck that left that Lake Cyrus neighborhood," says Rector.

Will Posey and his wife Lauren live in the Lake Cyrus neighborhood. While the Posey's surveillance video didn't have any shots needed in this particular case, Posey knows these systems can help police.

"When I saw the word was out (the police) were looking for anybody that had video, I contacted Hoover (Police Department) and let them know I had home footage," Posey said. "If say, half or every other house had video surveillance, it would bring more information to solve crimes, to solve this crime."

Rector says the department is reviewing business surveillance video as well. "We're certainly going to numerous locations throughout the state reviewing video," he said. "We never know where we're going to catch that break."

Right now, there are no suspects. But, Rector believes that could soon change. "We're looking at multiple individuals," he said. "There's probably going to be a Bessemer connection to this. These individuals have talked to friends already. The friends they've talked to, have also talked to friends. So there's people in the community that know who did this. So it's only a matter of time before the first one talks."

ABC 33/40 reached out to Bessemer police to see if they had any additional information in this case. We were told they are continuing to assist Hoover police at this time.
