Crime Stoppers of Metro Alabama announces a
$25,000 Reward
in the April 19th shooting of a 5-year old.


The Birmingham Police Department and Crime Stoppers of Metro Alabama have announced that the reward amount in the case of a 5-year-old shooting victim has been increased to $25,000. The increase of an additional $20,000 comes from the Gun Violence Against Children Fund. The fund was created by Mayor Randall Woodfin in 2021, where area churches contributed funding for enhanced rewards for cases where children have been injured or killed by gunfire.

According to Board Chairman Frank Barefield, “We feel that during National Crime Victims Rights Week is the right time to send the message that reckless gun violence against the children of our community will not be tolerated. Those responsible for the injury or death of a child will be held accountable for their actions. We hope the reward money increase will enable law enforcement to bring justice to this family.”

If you know who the person(s) is who committed this violent act, you need to come forward and say enough is enough. All you need to do is call Crime Stoppers. You will be kept anonymous, and you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $25,000.


If you know who or why…make the call to Crime Stoppers at (205) 254-7777!

On Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at around 8:00 PM, Community Safety Partnership officers and North Precinct officers were dispatched to the 3000 Block of 29th Avenue North (Collegeville Housing Community) on report of a person shot.

Officers arrived on the scene and observed an adult female and her 5-year-old daughter in the front yard of an apartment suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.

Birmingham Fire and Rescue (BFR) personnel transported the adult female to UAB Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries; BFR transported the 5-year-old child to Children’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The preliminary investigation suggests multiple suspects fired gunshots toward the victims and then fled the scene.

There is no one in custody and this was a targeted incident. Officers recovered over 70 spent shell rifle/handgun shell casings from the scene. The Birmingham Police Department’s Real Time Crime Center has greatly assisted our detectives in this investigation.

The public is urged to call us directly if they have any tips (205) 254-1764 or remain anonymous and receive a cash reward by dialing Crime Stoppers @ (205) 254-7777.

Who matters most to you and some images in a poster

Unsolved homicides affect our entire community but most important the loved ones of those we have lost. Too often survivors are left with no knowledge of available assistance as they deal with the days, weeks, and months after a violent crime affects their lives. Our community partners provide support and services to homicide survivors but also to other crimes that affect our community.

About us

Crime Stoppers of Metro Alabama offers cash rewards for tips that lead to the arrest or charge of felony offenders. Our tipsters remain ANONYMOUS. We do not have caller ID, and IP addresses from tips submitted via the internet are deleted. Offering cash rewards is a proven way of getting the information law enforcement needs to solve crimes and locate wanted criminals, but the real value of our program is that it gives citizens an opportunity to help make the communities where they live and work safer. Crime Stoppers of Metro Alabama is not a law enforcement agency, but it works closely with law enforcement throughout Central and North Alabama.
