This week's Crime Stoppers cold case involves possible road rage on Bessemer Road. November 8, 2007, David Reeves was shot and killed. It may have been a long time since then, but detectives believe someone still remembers what happened and can help them find the killer.

Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper explains how you can help.

From Chief Roper:

"I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper.

Road rage could have led to David reeves death. He was 28 years old when he was killed, and we need to find his killer to make sure that person pays for the crime.

This is what we know. November 8, 2007, Reeves was driving his grey 1994 Saturn vehicle in the 900 block of Bessemer Road. We believe he may have been involved in some type of road rage altercation. That's because evidence suggests the suspect was shooting from another vehicle next to Reeve's vehicle.

I know that's not a lot of information, but we're never going to solve some of these cold cases if people continue to stay silent. We're doing our part. If you want a safer community, it's up to everyone to share what they know. And remember: Crime Stoppers keeps you anonymous.

Just dial 205-254-7777. We will not take your name. We will not record the call, and Crime Stoppers cannot call you to court to testify. You have nothing to worry about.

Reeves didn't deserve this. Think back to what happened, and go ahead and make the call.

With Crime Stoppers, I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper."
