"Person of
            interest" sought in shootings of six gay men in
            Chicago

Local authorities
investigating the December 31 shootings of six gay men in

Chicago at what some
described as a "gay house"

have new leads that suggest it
was not a hate crime but the result of a "personal
feud or rivalry

."
One of those new leads is a
cell phone photo or video that has detectives searching
for a "person of interest," Advocate.com has
learned exclusively.

"Someone didn't like
someone else," one city official close to the
investigation told Advocate.com. "To settle
the score, one young man left the party and
returned with one or more friends and guns."

Six men were wounded after masked gunmen
reportedly broke into a house party and opened gunfire
on a crowd of up to a hundred men on the morning of
December 31. Police initially suspected a bias motive
because the home was known throughout the south side
neighborhood as "the gay house" because of the
frequent parties and its visitors. (Rod McCullom,
