Police arrest man in connection to deadly Minneapolis hit-and-run

The victim died the scene in north Minneapolis on Friday.

A man is in custody and facing pending charges of criminal vehicular homicide in connection to a deadly hit-and-run in Minneapolis. 

The fatal hit-and-run was reported to Minneapolis Police Department on Thursday, Mar. 4, at North 30th and North Newton Avenues, with multiple 911 callers telling dispatch that a man was down on the street after being struck by a driver who fled the scene.

Police arrived to find the victim in grave condition, and he was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene. 

On Saturday, Minneapolis PD announced that a 54-year-old man had been arrested and booked in to the Hennepin County Adult Detention Center on pending charges of criminal vehicular homicide, who has been deemed the "operator of the vehicle" involved in the deadly collision, police said. 

Investigators believe the 54-year-old was behind the wheel of a white or cream-colored SUV that was headed east on N. 30th Ave. when it struck the victim, and left the scene without stopping. 

The victim's identity has not been released. Bring Me The News does not typically name suspects until formal charges are filed.
