They are trying to identify burglars seen in that area in the past since Rosenlieb was shot and killed by a burglar.

Tulsa police are still working very hard to determine who killed 80-year-old Jim Rosenlieb on Monday and now they say they may have found a photo that could lead to more information on their suspect. 

Back in November, a man who lives two blocks away from Jim Rosenlieb sent News On 6 video of four men trying to break into his shed.

He said they didn't take anything except a lock but one of the four was carrying a firearm. 

The victim in this break-in, Braden Beller, said he handed photos from the video over to police and filed a report back in November but hasn't really heard anything since. 

But after searching the neighborhood for clues, police believe this incident could be connected to the home invasion on Monday. 

“Generally looking at anything in a wide path for anything that would strike our interest and obviously this picture fits because you've got four kids trying doors and one's got a gun,” said Tulsa Police Sergeant Dave Walker. 

Walker said they are still waiting on the lab results to come through but said canvassing the neighborhood is an investigative tactic they are using in the meantime. 

If you recognize any of the men in the photos or have any information that could help police solve this case, call Crime Stoppers.
