This week's unsolved homicide case involves a 22-year-old Leeds man who was shot and killed February 8. Andrew Martin was left to die behind a fast food restaurant, and police are turning to the public for some new leads to help solve the case.

It's a case Crime Stoppers featured in March, and detectives want to give you the clues, again, in hopes of someone coming forward. Remember: you will remain anonymous, and there's a cash reward if your tip leads to an arrest.

Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper has more.

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

We're committed to finding whoever killed Andrew Martin, but we need your help to do that.

Martin was killed Friday, February 8th. Around 4:30 pm, police were called to the intersection of 41st Street North and Messer Airport Highway.

Martin was sitting in a 2001 Honda Prelude. He had been shot several times and was taken to the hospital, but he died. We believe martin was shot in the alley behind Popeyes Chicken.

Nothing like this happens without somebody talking. Rumors fly. Now we need to hear from you. You might not think your information is valuable, but even the smallest clue could help us find the killer.

When you call Crime Stoppers, we won't use caller ID. We won't record the phone call, and Crime Stoppers cannot call you to court to testify. Plus, if your tip leads to an arrest, you qualify for a cash reward, and you still wont have to give your name.

It's time to find whoever killed Andrew Martin, and it's time for you to take a stand.

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

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

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.
