UPDATE: Venue for memorial changed to Strathmore Music Center; memorial service for Brian Betts will be held there on May 1.

By Matt Bush

Police in Montgomery County now believe there may be more than one suspect in the murder of D.C. middle school Principal Brian Betts.

Police now say they're searching for a vehicle that was seen leaving an alley adjacent to Betts' home in Silver Spring on the night he was shot and killed. Investigators did not give a description of the vehicle, but say they believe it may be related to Betts' murder, opening the possibility that more than one suspect was involved in the crime. At least one person reported seeing the vehicle, according to police.

A private funeral was held for Betts yesterday, and afterward he was buried in Manassas, Virginia. A public memorial service was originally scheduled in the District at Cardozo High School on May 1, but instead will be held at the Strathmore Music Center to accommodate more people.
