Someone fired a gun, and when the dust settled a 25-year-old Birmingham woman was dead. As we speak, the killer is still out on the streets. Now, Police Chief A.C. Roper says it's time to shatter the silence and take a stand against this crime.

"I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper.
 
Tinisha Malone's killer is still out there either because someone's afraid to talk or they're just unwilling to talk. Well, tonight, is the time for you to speak up.
 
You can call Crime Stoppers, and we'll never ask for your name. Crime Stoppers cannot call you to court to testify.
 
Here's what we know. Malone was shot and killed August 10, 2004. It happened along the 3900 block of George Avenue. Police were called to the scene, and Malone was lying on the front porch of her home. She had been shot several times and was dead.

Officers also found out that a friend of Malone's had also been shot, but his wounds weren't life threatening. He told police that he was visiting Malone. They were sitting on the front porch and said someone began shooting from the side of the house. Then he said the suspect jumped the fence and ran across the front yard shooting at them.

So that's it. What else have you heard? There's no need to let this crime continue to go unsolved, and there's no need for you to be afraid.

When you call Crime Stoppers, no one will ask your name. They don't use caller ID, and they won't trace the call. Just dial 205-254-7777. You could even get a cash reward, and you still remain anonymous.

Justice for Tinisha Malone could be one call away. It's up to you. You know what to do.

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

You can reach Crime Stoppers anytime at (205) 254-7777.

Also, you can text 7777, along with your tip, to the word "CRIMES." Or if you prefer to send an encrypted tip online, go to www.crimestoppersmetroal.com click on the "submit an online tip" link.

No matter which method you choose, you will remain anonymous. Each tipster receives a private code number. If an arrest is made based on an individual's tip, the tipster can use the code number to claim a cash reward.

Crime Stoppers cannot call tipsters to testify in court.
