SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego police say a man suspected in a hit-and-run crash that killed a 15-year-old boy has turned himself in after seeing online pleas from the youth’s mother.

The Union-Tribune newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1LspH51) the suspect called police from his City Heights apartment Monday. When officers arrived they found the green minivan suspected in the crash parked in an alley.

Witnesses provided a description of the minivan following the crash Friday night that left Crawford High School junior Jonathan Cortez dead.

Detective Dan Wall says the man told investigators what happened, but Wall declined to disclose details.

County prosecutors will decide whether to press charges. Until then, the driver, identified only as an adult male, will not be arrested.
