LAS VEGAS - Oneida Lewis-Baker hadn't heard from her father, 64-year-old James Lewis, for years.
Though their communication was basically non existent, Oneida never stopped searching for him.

"I looked for my dad for years and I couldn't find him," Lewis-Baker said.

It turns out, James lived in the same city as her and was the third homeless person killed last week.

Police believe their deaths may be connected.

"To watch someone drive twice by him, get out and shoot him like he didn't have any loved ones, that was heartbreaking," she said.

A small memorial with candles now sits where Lewis was shot. In the surveillance video, a man gets out of an SUV at 4:15 a.m. early Friday morning, fires two shots at Lewis, and runs away.

There was no struggle and Lewis never even appeared to wake up.

"You took someone who served this country. You took a military veteran," Lewis-Baker said.
