ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Albuquerque family still searching for answers two years after their loved one was killed by a stray bullet has renewed its efforts to hopefully find a killer.
August 17, 2013 marks the two year anniversary of Andrae Davis’ death. Davis was just 31 when a stray bullet came through the door of his home and hit him in the chest. Davis died a short time later from the wound and the people responsible for his death still haven’t been found.
Davis’ family spent Sunday walking the Eagle Nest Apartments in southeast Albuquerque near Gibson and Carlisle where Davis died. The family put several dozen flyers in doors, hoping their new efforts can turn up new information.
In the last two years, police have received no new information on the case.
“He hasn't been forgotten with us, you know, we'd like to have justice for him,” said Constance Yancey, Davis’ mother.
On August 17, 2011, Davis was hit by a bullet while standing inside his apartment. Police say two men were fighting outside of the apartment when one person shot and the bullet pierced Davis’ chest.
Since then, the official police report has remained the same with the only detail being that Davis was shot.
“He still hasn't been brought to justice, the person that killed him,’ said Yancey. “As his mother I feel the need to help get justice for his life.”
Davis was a father of three children. For most family members, year two is just as hard as day one. Yancey hopes the flyers serve as a reminder of her son’s life and death.
“Remind them of the story, that maybe somebody might remember something or maybe somebody may feel something and want to say something now because nothing has been done,” said Yancey.
Despite learning so little about what happened to Andrae in the last two years, the family says they won’t stop their search until they get answers.
“We hope that somebody, somebody will have a heart and tell something that they know, a license plate, maybe something that they don't think is important, but it is important, they just don't know it,” said Anita Blackston, Davis’ grandmother.
Police were originally looking for a suspect spotted leaving the scene in a gray or silver Dodge Magnum, however, no one was caught. Police told family members that they believe the guys involved in the shooting were in the country illegally and may be back in Mexico at this point.
