Reno police have released surveillance video of a person of interest in the case of a man who died after reportedly being shoved off a bridge downtown earlier this month.

Police are looking for a man wearing a plaid flannel shirt that is partially unbuttoned with a white undershirt, blue pants and dark colored hat.

Police say he is white, between 30 and 40 years old, between 6'-6'3" and around 220 pounds.

Police say he may be connected to the death of Gregory Thornton.

Thornton died after being rescued from the Truckee River earlier this month. He told investigators he was pushed off the Kuenzli Street bridge.
