The Columbus Police Department is investigating a deadly hit-and-run incident.
On November 28, around 11:49 p.m. a middle-aged man believed to have been walking was hit by a dark or black car as he walked east on 7th Avenue North near 21st Street North.
Police said that the case is still under investigation. They are working on gathering evidence and retrieving and analyzing footage from city-owned cameras in the area.
“It is still early in the case, but investigators believe the man was walking East and was struck by a car also believed to be traveling East,” said Public Information Officer Joe Dillon early Tuesday.
“Sadly, the man that was struck died at the scene, and the vehicle left the area. Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant will determine the cause of death and will provide the identification of the victim,”  Dillon added.
Police ask if anyone sees a dark-colored car with front-end damage or a broken windshield that hasn’t been evident in the past to use the P3 app to send an anonymous text or call Crimestoppers at 800-530-7151.
