2 pedestrians killed in hit-and-run in Eagan late Thursday night

One report says the incident may be a hit-and-run.


Eagan police say two people were killed when a vehicle struck them in the parking lot of a business on the west side of 2020 Silver Bell Road around 9:50 p.m. Thursday. 

The victims were taken to Regions Hospital but did not survive. 

The driver of the vehicle suspected of hitting them fled the scene, but the vehicle was found around 11 p.m. nearby at La Fonda De Los Lobos on Hwy. 13 in Eagan. 

The investigation led to the arrest of the suspect, a 36-year-old male, at the AmericInn located at 15000 Glazier Avenue in Apple Valley. 

This is a developing story.
