Police say they believe they have found the driver of a vehicle that struck and killed Austin Conley, a freshman at Augsburg College, WCCO reports. Conley was hit at about 2:40 a.m. Saturday at Third Street North and First Avenue in Minneapolis. Authorities arrested the suspect in Ramsey County, and they believe they have also located the vehicle from the incident, WCCO reports.
Conley's sister, Alissa Conley, of Minneapolis, said her brother grew up in Minneapolis and went to Dunwoody Institute and several other Minneapolis schools prior to attending Augsburg, the Star Tribune reports. He aspired to work in the music industry after college, she told the newspaper.
KARE 11 spoke with a friend of Conley who was there when he was struck. "We are hurting every day, this cannot be reversed or taken back, whoever did it, God show no mercy upon their souls," Freeman Carter told KARE.
