PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say a person of interest has turned himself in over a hit-and-run that left a man dead in northeast Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small says a car rammed into a bus shelter near the Roosevelt Mall around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, launching the victim and the shelter about 100 feet.

Small says the driver of the Lexus got out of the car, walked over to the victim, looked at the body and then fled on foot.

The wrecked car was left at the scene, with a completely shattered windshield and blood, believed to be the driver’s, on the air bag.

Police say the suspected driver turned himself in around 8 a.m. Tuesday. No charges have been filed.

Police haven’t released the victim’s identity.
