The Governor's office has pledged a $5,000 reward for the arrest and conviction for the person responsible for a 2012 homicide. That's in addition to a Crime Stoppers reward.

Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper has this week's homicide report.

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

Whoever killed Peter Hargrove hasn't started paying for the crime. It's our job to make sure it doesn't stay that way, but we need your tips in order to do that. So help us catch his killer.

It was Thursday, June 14, 2012, when police were called to the 700 block of 78th Street South. A witness said when he went to Hargrove's house to check on him, he was dead. Hargrove was lying on the floor in a back bedroom. He had been shot in the head.

Another witness said he heard a gunshot coming from Hargrove's house the day before.
Then, he saw two black males run from the house.

Anything you saw or anything you've heard could be the evidence we need to put the killer behind bars.

If you know those answers or anything else, call Crime Stoppers at 254-7777. We'll keep you anonymous, and if there's an arrest from your tip, you get a cash reward.
 
Plus: The Governor's office is pledging a reward leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever's responsible.
 
And remember: The greatest reward is justice for Peter Hargrove and making sure whoever took his life pays for the crime.

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

In addition to telephone tips, encrypted tips can be submitted online by going to www.birminghamcrimestoppers.org and clicking on the "submit an online tip" link. Also, you can text 7777, along with your tip, to the word CRIMES.

If you provide information to Crime Stoppers, detectives will never ask for your name, and they will never see your phone number. Instead, you will be assigned a private code number. If your tip is the first to lead to an arrest, you then use the code number to claim a cash reward.

Crime Stoppers cannot call its tipsters to testify in court.

Crime Stoppers of Metro Alabama is a partnership between local law enforcement, the Birmingham Business Alliance and ABC 33/40. Together, our goal is to make our community a safer place to live and work.
