Update: Police locate car in fatal hit-and-run, no suspect in custody


Minneapolis police have found the suspect vehicle they were looking for in connection with a fatal hit-and-run.

Police say officers arrived at 30th and Fremont Avenues North at 5:26 p.m. after 911 callers described a car hitting a woman and driving away – headed westbound on 30th Ave.

Authorities say the woman hit by the car was taken to a hospital and died of her injuries later Tuesday night.

The statement from police says witnesses described the car as an older model Ford Crown Victoria with a white body and possibly a dark-colored roof that may have been a taxi at one time.

Police asked for help from the public finding that vehicle, and around 9 a.m. Wednesday said in a news release officers on routine patrol found the car. It's now in the custody of the police department.

Police Department spokesperson John Elder told BringMeTheNews there is no suspect in custody at this point, adding investigators are "talking to anybody that might have any possible information."

The Star Tribune spoke with the boyfriend of the victim, whom he identified as a 50-year-old North Minneapolis woman.
