If you've been in the Valley for a while, you might be able to help police out with this one:

"This is definitely a cold case," said Phoenix Police Sgt. Darren Burch. "This was on Saturday, June 8, 2002 at about 10 p.m. Twenty-four-year-old Josh Harbor was drinking soda and playing video games at the Coyote Wild Bar and Grill near Seventh Avenue and Bell. It's a place where some biker gangs hang out."

Josh loved motorcycles and had a few biker gang friends, but he wasn't a drinker and didn't look for trouble. There were about 30 people in the bar that night when Josh walked outside for a minute. Witnesses heard a gunshot.

"Josh walked back into the bar holding his neck," Burch said. "He'd been shot and, unfortunately, he bled to death right there in the bar."

A vehicle similar to the one used is shown.

Our next case is an aggravated assault on a teenager. On Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013, just after 11 a.m., a 15-year-old boy was walking in the area of 48th Street and McDowell Road. A man drove up in a dark green GMC Yukon and the two got into some kind of argument. A man and woman got out of the SUV and the guy punched the teen in the face.

"The driver of the Yukon hit the kid so hard it knocked him unconscious and broke several bones in his face," said Burch.
