RS source is reporting a hit and run to his little brother earlier tonight.
” Around 5ish on Guilford and Westchester, my little brother was involved in a hit and run. He was crossing the street by a downed limb from the storm. And a car hit him. ”
The vehicle fled the scene. RPD has not given any info on the suspect vehicle. If you have any info, please call the police or you can contact us anonymously and we can relay the tip to the police for you
Update: We have been told it was a fatal. So we went to work the scene.
We asked the officer on scene if it was a fatal. And he just said “it is a current investigation and couldn’t speak” so he did not confirm nor deny if it was a fatal.
With that being said, I have personally worked numerous fatal scenes over the years, and this did not appear to be a fatal accident scene. (Only a few officers, vehicles driving through where the accident scene happened at, etc…)
We were told this was a hit and run. RPD officer wouldn’t confirm nor deny that either. Saying “it is a current investigation and couldn’t speak” so he did not confirm nor deny if it was a hit & run. When I worked the scene, I only saw police officers. I did not see any other vehicles. So this is possibly true. But again, RPD wouldn’t confirm nor deny anything.

RS source John P said: “I would like to have something posted to your page. I have a video of kids stealing 2 bikes from me and my neighbors house. Will you post it . It happened on Knight Ave. 11:30 a.m. looks like they got dropped off by a bus on Rockton possibly or even came from West.
