Police were left asking questions after an apparent murder on Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012.
"Thirty-three-year-old Alan King was just walking in the parking lot of his apartment complex near 27th Avenue and Bethany Home Road just before 10 a.m.," said Phoenix Police Sgt. Darren Burch.
It happened at the Desert Place Apartment Homes.
"A dark-colored vehicle ran him over", said Burch. "What was significant about this crime is that the vehicle was speeding up as if it was intentionally trying to run him over -- maybe a targeted event."
King didn't survive. All police know is that it was a dark-colored sedan, possibly dark blue or dark green.

"Sixteen-year-old Carlos Paynter was standing in front of his house in the area of 41st Avenue and McDowell when two vehicles drove by and shots were fired from one of the vehicles, killing Carlos," said Burch.
It's not known which vehicle the shots came from or if the two vehicles were together. One was a white truck, the other an older model Chevy Impala.
Burch hopes that because so much time has passed, someone will now be willing to talk.
