Detectives continue to work to uncover what happened in the final hours of David Williams' life. He was shot and killed several blocks from his home. Police are sure someone in the neighborhood knows who pulled the trigger.

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

David Leon Williams was out one night in October of 2009 when someone took his life. Witnesses said they heard several gunshots. They saw Williams running from an alley, and he collapsed at the corner of 26th Street Ensley and Avenue F.

Williams himself lived on 23rd Street Ensley, and we need someone to provide more about what he was doing that night and who else was around that time.

Already, we've been told a group of juveniles were in the area flashing a gun. Now we need some names to go with that report. What's the word on the street? No doubt, plenty of people have talked about it, and there might be some truth to those rumors. Let us check it out.

Remember: When you call Crime Stoppers, we don't record the call. We'll give you a private code number, and Crime Stoppers cannot call you to court to testify. If we arrest the killer based on your tip, you can use a code number to claim a cash reward.

And David Williams will finally have justice. And no one else will know it was you who called.

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

You can reach Crime Stoppers anytime by phone at 205-254-7777 or by texting the word "CRIMES" with your tip to 7777.

To send a tip online, go to www.crimestoppersmetroal.com and click on the "submit an online tip" link.

NOTE: You will remain anonymous no matter which method you contact Crime Stoppers. Each tipster receives a private code number, which you can use to claim a cash reward should your tip lead to an arrest. Crime Stoppers cannot call tipsters to testify in court.
