Police are asking for everyone to continue to keep a look out for Pappas, but to consider him armed and risky.

Dr. Mark Hausknecht was gunned down July 20 while riding his bike to work at Texas Medical Center.

Chief Art Acevedo named Joseph James Pappas II as the suspect in the slaying of Dr. Mark Hausknecht.

Police searched his home at 4 a.m., August 1, and have been in contact with Spencer.

Police were able to identify Pappas, "thanks to the fact that we have a community that's cooperative, that is a partner, that understands that they have a responsibility to play a huge role in keeping our neighborhoods safe", the chief said. An arrest warrant for murder subsequently was issued, the chief said. Police urged anyone with information on Pappas' whereabouts to call 911. He is considered armed and risky, and police believe he may be suicidal.

He is understood to have been living alone in a three-bedroom house in Houston since the death of his father, Joseph James Pappas I, in 2010.

Pappas worked for 30 years as a constable, according to Texas Commission on Law Enforcement records.

The suspect is considered to be armed and unsafe, and police advise the public not to try to deal with him directly.

"I can tell, it is an older Schwinn", he said.

In 2000, Hausknecht treated Bush for an irregular heartbeat after the ex-president complained about lightheadedness. She said she's known Pappas for about 25 years.

The individual may have been seeking revenge for his mother, who died during an operation performed by the doctor over 20 years ago, authorities have said.

Acevedo said a tip came in Tuesday after surveillance video released a day before showed the suspect, whom someone said they recognized. He worked for Harris County as a peace officer and a reserve officer from May 1983 to July 2013.

On Armslist.com, a website where people can sell firearms, someone with the same phone number as Pappas' real estate company had several listings for a variety of weapons and accessories, including a.38-calibre revolver, a semi-automatic rifle and some bullet-proof vests.

Acevedo said there's other evidence that leads them to believe Pappas is the shooter, but did not provide additional details.

Investigative reporter Jeremy Rogalski uncovered the online ads on national firearms marketplace sites and the Houston Greensheet.

Friends and colleagues remembered the doctor as a quiet, generous and kind person.

"He is nearly lost in the past", Dr. Ablow said.
