OAKLAND, Calif. —
Oakland police say a man who was killed in a hit and run last night may have been trying to break up a street fight in the moments before he died.
Officers responded around 9:07 p.m. Saturday to a report of collision involving a car and a pedestrian in the 6100 block of Eastlawn St., Oakland police Officer Kevin McDonald said.
Responding officers arrived on scene to find the victim's body lying in the street.
The pedestrian was pronounced dead later Saturday night, and police began treating the collision as a homicide.
Witnesses told officers the driver hit the victim in a white S.U.V. and then took off.
The driver, a 19 year old woman was detained shortly after and was questioned.
Investigators didn’t know Sunday morning if the woman knew the victim and the names of those involved were not released.
