Police say they want to talk to Smollett again.
Police are investigating a tip by someone claiming Empire actor Jussie Smollett was in the elevator of his apartment building with two brothers who were later arrested and questioned in the case, only to be released without charges hours later.
Smollett told authorities he was attacked early January 29 by two men who were "yelling out racial and homophobic slurs".
After the alleged attack took place, Smollett and his manager called the police. They did find and release images of two people they said they wanted to question.
Smollett now is facing further questioning by the Chicago Police Department after two persons of interest (brothers from Nigeria, one of whom worked as a personal trainer on a music video of Smollett's) were released on Friday after additional interviews, and without being charged.

Back in the Bronx, Ocasio-Cortez says to keep up the fight
Host Erin Burnett read Ocasio-Cortez's tweet celebrating the decision and asked if she shared her sentiment. Even Trump hating entertainer Cher called out Cortez.
Trump tells reporters at the White House that he saw a story the night before about Smollett and that, 'It doesn't get worse, as far as I'm concerned'.
On Saturday, multiple outlets reported that the brothers claimed that the Empire star paid them to stage the incident.
Producers of "Empire" dispute media reports that Smollett's character was being written off the show. "He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack".
Anne Kavanagh, a spokeswoman for Smollett's lawyers, said they would "keep an active dialogue with Chicago police on his behalf".
A police spokesman said the two are no longer considered suspects and that investigators have "new evidence" to consider as a result of questioning them.
The rapper said she is holding onto hope that Smollett is not lying.
