TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Police have released few specifics about the slaying of a Florida State University law professor. But investigators have made one detail clear: Whoever targeted the man wanted him dead.

Investigators have ruled out a robbery gone wrong and say the killing was premeditated.

Tallahassee police are looking for a vehicle of interest. Cameras caught what appears to be a Toyota Prius in the area of Daniel Markel's home near the time of the shooting last week.

Police are asking the public for any tips about the vehicle and for anyone with surveillance in the area to come forward.

Police spokesman David Northway says there are no suspects.
