Arlington police investigate hit and run
Arlington County police are investigating a hit and run that killed a 62-year-old pedestrian near the Pentagon early Tuesday morning.
The victim has been identified as Robert Shepard of Lawrence, Mass., police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said.
Officers responded to a call at 5:36 a.m. from someone who saw a vehicle with a body in front of it at the I-395 exit on southbound Route 110.
When police arrived they found the body approximately 60 feet from what they believe to be the point of collision, Mr. Sternbeck said. Mr. Shepard was pronounced dead at the scene and had military identification.
Mr. Shepard was reported missing by his girlfriend in Massachusetts on June 29. He had a history of mental illness, Mr. Sternbeck said.
Two southbound lanes on Route 110 and the I-395 exit ramp were closed for more than five hours during the initial investigation. The roads reopened around noon.
