— Fayetteville police took to the streets Wednesday afternoon in an attempt to solve a 5-year-old murder.

Alexander Green, 22, a student at Fayetteville University studying criminal law, was gunned down at the Haymount Cottages on Elvira Street during a home invasion on November 7, 2010.

He was hosting a party in apartment 2112-B when two men wearing bandanas barged in with rifles, demanding money. Back then, friends said Green was trying to stop the home invaders from hurting anyone when he was shot and killed. Another woman was wounded in the incident.

“He was a great kid. A great, great kid and a wonderful young man,” Green’s mother, Pamela Green, said.

Green’s family is still looking for closure. Family members traveled from their Virginia home Wednesday and went door to door with Fayetteville police, passing out fliers in an attempt to see if anybody remembers anything about that night.

“The only thing I know is that he was shot and killed. No one has any answers,” Pamela Green said.

While police continue to search for the suspects, family members are searching for justice.

“We just want some closure,” Green’s uncle Anthony Hairston said. “We want the people who are responsible for it found.”

Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to contact the Fayetteville Police Department at 910-391-2529
