2 men questioned in Cosby case
LOS ANGELES -- Police questioned two men in the Ennis Cosby murder
investigation Monday night.
Police said the men, described as witnesses, were picked up in suburban
Torrance, Calif., after a woman reported seeing a car in a Sav-On drugstore
parking lot that matched a police sketch of a vehicle parked near where Ennis
Cosby was shot.
A security guard had reported seeing the car, described as a blue hatchback with
possible out-of-state plates GRH921, 15 minutes before Cosby's shooting on Jan.
16. The guard described the driver as a white man in his late 20s or early 30s
with a mustache, goatee and mole on his left cheek, wearing a dark beret.
In Torrance, T.K. Hsu, who owns the Top Wok restaurant near where the men
were picked up Monday, said their car had out-of-state plates. He described one
of the men as white with a goatee and sideburns.
Gas station attendant Danielle Browning said the men had been in the area for
two days. Browning also said one had a goatee. Her manager shooed them away
Sunday, she added.
Police said neither man is the gunman described by the female witness to the
Cosby shooting. She told police the gunman was a white man between 25 and 32
years of age, clean-shaven, average build and wearing a knit cap.
Cosby, 27, was gunned down early Thursday after he stopped to change a flat
tire on his Mercedes-Benz convertible in a posh Bel Air neighborhood. Police
believe robbery was the motive, although nothing was taken.
Since police released sketches of the gunman, the goateed witness and the blue
hatchback Saturday, more than 200 calls have come in to a hot line.
