According to the New York Post, police are seeking
an acquaintance of Jam Master Jay, who they think may have served as a lookout
for the man who murdered the rap star in his Queens, New York recording studio.
The police say the man is an convicted drug dealer
who left the city days after Jay was gunned down. Authorities say the man rarely
visited Jay's studio, but was seen there by eyewitnesses hours before Jay was
shot on October 30.
Police say he stood watch outside of the studio
and tipped the gunman off to the fact that Jay had arrived and was inside of
the recording studio. He stood at the ground floor door way as the killer went
upstairs and shot Jay at point blank range as he sat playing a video game in
the studio's lounge.
Cops believe he may have fled to the Washington,
Meanwhile detectives continue their search for
prime suspect Curtis Scoon, of Queens and Georgia. Sources told AllHipHop.com
that Scoon had hired one of the highest priced attorney's in New York City.
As he attempted to negotiate his surrender through
his lawyer, Scoon allegedly fled, saying that he had received numerous threats
against his life, including threats from the New York Police Department.
