UPDATE: The victim has been identified as 31-year-old Marlon Jose Briones-Jarquin.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man died Monday morning in a hit-and-run crash on the city’s west side, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

At around 4 a.m., police were called to the 6400 block of West 34th Street. That’s a residential area just west of North High School Road near I-465.

Officers arrived and found a man’s body in the middle of the street. Police believe he was walking in the road when he was hit by the driver of a westbound vehicle. The driver then left the scene.

The hit-and-run is still under investigation and police have not identified any possible suspects.
