The family of a man killed in Huntsville is asking for help in finding the shooter


HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – It’s been 9 days since 27-year-old Andrew Gilliam was shot and killed at his residence at Edgewater Apartments in Sunlake. Now his family is asking anyone who may know anything about the shooter to come forward.

Vic Hartman, Gilliam’s relative, told News 19, “This story is something that only happens on the evening news and it doesn’t affect you personally until it affects you.” I lost my loved one, my husband, my son, my brother.

The Huntsville Police Department (HPD) says they responded to a call of a shooting at the Sunlake at Edgewater Apartments around 3 a.m. on Wednesday, January 4th. When responders arrived, they found Gilliam shot through a bedroom window. HPD said Gilliam later died at the hospital.

The apartment complex is located on Zierdt Road in Huntsville, just down from the Martin Road gate at Redstone Arsenal.

Huntsville police said several apartments were shot, but Gilliam was the only person injured.

At this time, Huntsville police have not released any information on the suspect and say information is limited.

“We have a few leads, but it’s very limited information, certainly no witnesses that we know of at this time,” said Sgt. Huntsville Police Department Major Crimes Supervisor Jack Pugh told News 19.
