On Aug. 19 at approximately 5:30 am Harker Heights Police officers responded to 600 East Central Texas Expressway in reference to a hit and run, where a vehicle struck two male subjects walking along the side of the roadway, and fled the scene.
A previous press release stated that the vehicle involved may have been a dark-colored SUV, possibly a GMC Arcadia, which would have sustained major front end damage on the passenger side.
Later that afternoon, Aug. 9, one of the hit-and-run victims succumbed to his injuries while at Scott & White Hospital.
Because the victim is a juvenile, his identity will be withheld.
On Aug. 22, Harker Heights Police located a possible suspect vehicle, which was stopped and seized as evidence. The driver was identified. The investigation is continuing at this time.
Anyone with information about this incident should contact the Harker Heights Police Department at (254)943-5400, Criminal Investigation Division.
