CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

An unsolved murder case in Charlotte is getting new attention.

Eric Byrd was shot and killed during an armed robbery outside an apartment complex five years ago.

Whoever pulled the trigger is still on the loose.

Byrd's mother says it's hurtful that no one has come forward, when she believes people have information.

Police say Eric Byrd rode along with three others to an apartment complex known at the time as Lake Point.

Investigators say Byrd knew the driver of the car was looking to score drugs.

Police say the shooter wanted to rob the men, but during the shooting, Byrd was killed and the other two men were hurt.
