In Crime Stoppers: A case that's gone cold. There are no suspects and no leads. Lloyd Houston, Jr. was killed outside his mother's house in 2000. Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper is looking for anonymous tips to help them find the killer.

"I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper.
 
The victim in this case is 38-year-old Lloyd Houston, Jr. He was shot and killed November 30, 2000. But even though no one's paid for the crime, we know there's still someone out there who can give us a vital clue.
This what we know.

Before he died, Houston was leaving his mother's house on the 3900 of Fairmont Place in Birmingham. As he backed out of the driveway, a man dressed in all black ran up to the car, fired several shots, and killed him.

Witnesses saw a white, Chevrolet Caprice or Impala pick up the suspect and leave the scene. The car had tinted windows with a strip of mirror tint running across the middle of the windows.

People have been questioned in this case, but there's still something missing. We believe people in the neighborhood can help. They may know something about the vehicle and suspects, but so far, they haven't come forward.

What we need is for you to get up the courage to call Crime Stoppers. Remember: you can speak up and lie low at the same time. We'll never take your name. That means no one will ever know it was you who called.

So call Crime Stoppers at 205-254-7777. Crime Stoppers has a cash reward in this case, and even if you collect, you still don't have to give your name.

It's time to get justice for Lloyd Houston, Jr. You owe it to him and to the community.

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