Surveillance photos released in connection with December death of pastor, jazz musicianEric “Guitar” Davis was a bluesman with a passion for music, Willie Cooper, a pastor with a heart to help.

In life they never crossed paths, but police believe their violent deaths are connected.

“If something like that could happen to cooper then nobody is safe, nobody is safe.”

Passing out flyers, with pictures of two men police say are responsible Cooper’s fiancé Mamie Washington and Davis’ older brother Robert Jones spent Saturday looking for justice.

Cooper was shot before dawn while sitting in a car at 70th and south East End Avenue, waiting to give a friend a ride to work.

Davis was shot in his car just three blocks away about 40 minutes later.

Police say the suspects in this flyer were trying to rob the two men and fired the fatal shots when Cooper and Davis tried to drive away

Washington and Jones say many people they handed flyers to know exactly who the men are. Police say they have interviewed eye witnesses and dozens of others who know the suspects, but no one will go on the record.
