Neighbors say they heard two shots and saw a man run form the house, a well dressed man fitting the general description of Andrew Cunanan, the alleged serial killer wanted in connection with Versace's murder. DET. NELDA FONTICIELLA\METRO-DADE POLICE: NEIGHBORS SAW GUY RUNNING AWAY, WELL DRESSED, ETC.
FBI agents and police swarmed the neighborhood around the home, confiscating a pager and looking for shell casings. Authorities are working on evidence that suggests that the same handgun may have been used in some of the five previous murders linked to Cunanan, including the murder of Gianni Versace who was shot twice in the back of the head.
