MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - It's an unsolved crime so cold-blooded, it's been featured as the "Crime Of The Week" twice by Memphis Police. Now, the victim's father is pleading with the public to help solve this crime.

Corey Levy was shot in the stomach after delivering a pizza at the Madison Cypress Lake Apartments on June 6th.

"I was told that he did not want to go to that delivery, he was afraid," said Alvin Levy. "He actually went on this delivery knowing that it might be a dangerous situation for him, and thus it turned out."

According to police, Levy was shot without warning after being approached by three men shortly after delivering a pizza to an apartment on the 3100 block of Cypress Lake Drive.

"It was extremely scary, when I heard the pop, I didn't immediately think it was a gun shot," said David Burse, who lives nearby.

"He was originally right here, that's where he was hollering that he had been shot," Burse said, pointing to a spot nearby. "He explained that he was delivering pizza, three guys jumped him and came and took his car."

Levy says his son was working while going through college and hoped to join the Air Force soon. He says those dreams are now on hold as he continues to fight for survival. Levy estimates his son still has at least another week in the Intensive Care Unit at The MED.

"If it wasn't for The MED, he would be dead," he said. "I pray to God that he will recovery fully."

Levy says he still can't believe this crime remains unsolved.

"Somebody out there knows who did it, and you are not doing anything about it. And you are a perpetrator just like the shooters," he said.

"What kind of society do we live in, where people turn a blind eye to their neighbors, who don't care about a young man trying to make a living get shot down in the street, and nobody comes forward?" Levy asked. "This is a society I don't want to have anything to do with."

"People know pizza delivery people don't have much money on them," Burse said. "For someone to attack somebody over, you know, $20, and potentially take someone's life is absolutely ridiculous. Ridiculous."
