HOUSTON (KRLD/AP) - Houston police released surveillance video of a man accused of killing a doctor who once treated former President George H.W. Bush.

Police say a homeowner gave them the video of the suspect.

The suspect is accused of gunning down Dr. Mark Hausknect. The doctor was murdered on July 20th as he rode his bike near his home to work.

The city’s Police Chief Art Acevedo said last week there’s a “high probability” Dr. Hausknecht was targeted when he was fatally earlier this month. Authorities say the shooter rode past Hausknecht before turning around and firing.

Police posted the video on social media Monday, saying it showed the suspect in a neighborhood immediately after the fatal shooting. The footage shows a person with a ball cap riding a bicycle.

Authorities have described the suspect as wearing a short-sleeved polo shirt and khaki shorts. He also had a green backpack. 

In 2000, Hausknecht treated Bush for an irregular heartbeat after the ex-president complained about lightheadedness.

Anyone with information is urged to contact HPD Homicide at 713-308-3600.
