Police search for suspect in deadly hit-and-run

Police are looking for a suspect in a deadly hit-and-run after a body was found lying in a Phoenix street.

Phoenix police tell Fox 10 that the body of a 54-year-old man was found lying in the street near 19 Avenue and Roeser just after midnight on Thursday.

Firefighters arrived at the scene and pronounced the man dead.

Investigators say evidence at the scene indicates the victim may have been riding a bicycle in the area when he was struck by a vehicle from behind.

The suspect did not remain at the scene after the collision and the victim was found by another motorist.

Nineteenth Avenue has reopened in both directions between Roeser and Sunland.
