Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper explains how you can help.

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

What we believe may have been a direct attack on 39-year-old Randell Sanders ends in a life lost. Sanders was killed Friday, November 9th. This is what we know happened.

That morning a black male suspect, wearing a hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, walked into the "Still Standing Barber Shop. It's on the 500 block of Oporto Madrid Boulevard North. The suspect shot Sanders multiple times. Sanders died.

Robbery does not appear to be a motive because the suspect didn't say anything before shooting sanders. The suspect ran from the crime scene up a nearby alley.

So that's it. Do you want to leave it at that? Or do you want to see the killer held accountable? My officers are pounding the pavement, and they turned up the information{}I just shared. Now, it's time for you to turn up some of your own.
